This was perhaps my favourite attraction visited in our weeklong stay in London. I'm immaculately restored and maintained, these underground offices give a brilliant look at the working conditions and lifestyles of those who made some of the most crucial decisions in Britain's war effort. The Churchill museum visited as part of the war rooms deserves to be a separate... More

For a cold day couldn't have chosen a better thing to do. In the bunkers you can see how the cabinet lived there and where all the big decisions about England's moves during the war were made. Very interesting overall. Also the Churchill museum was very interesting. As a young foreigner you get to understand more how important this man... More

This was a stop I definitely wanted to see. A tremendous amount of information to absorb that was well presented. Audio guides were well done.

Well laid out Museum in most respects, leading you through the rooms with a good free audio guide giving you descriptions and in some cases first-hand recollections from people who worked there. We heard there was a whole separate part, an interactive portion on Churchill's life/career and the war, which we somehow missed, so watch for that. It mostly kept... More

You can spend hours going through this exhibit which looks as if it was frozen in time shortly after World War II ended. Not only does it offer an extensive history into how Churchill operated during the war, but it also provides a detailed history of his life and accomplishments as well. It is centrally located. Admission is included in... More

I visited this not knowing what to expect. It was very interesting and I spent hours here. Some things I already knew and other things were new to me. A great amount of detail has gone into this attraction.

Interesting museum, a different point of view of Winston Churchill´s life and his influence in UK and global politics during the World Wars. Payment fee, unlike most of the Central London Museums, but it is worth if you are interested in the topic. Lots of information, documents, objects, videos... I would not reccomend for children.

We spent about 4 hours and made it about 3/4's of the way through before retiring for some food. I will return to complete the tour. This is a must for all those interested in Churchill. Incredible display of history and the descriptions are vivid and really put one back in time. A real highlight of this visit to London.

There is so much here to see. Very educational and interesting. Not so much for small kids, but teens and up should enjoy this. This is included in the London Pass also.

This museum was pretty awesome, especially if you are a fan of WWII history. It gives an amazing history of churchill himself from childhood to death, and shows you the operation center used to bring the allies victory in WWII. The map room is remarkable with maps being used as wall paper to strategies all war efforts. It cost about... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
