This is interesting but if you go 1-2 hours before closing you can move through with less crowds. They offer an audio tour or you can just wander through and read all the information they have if you need to get through faster.

This is an outstanding museum display showing the living and working conditions of Mr. Churchill and his staff during the war years. It's a self-guided tour with good explanations.

We were very impressed with the layout of the room and the amount of medals Winston had earned. we have recommended this to friends who are travelling to London. I cannot tick when nI travelled as it is more than 12 months ago.

Recently I had the opportunity to spend about 3 hours in the Churchill War Rooms. While no re-creation can exactly duplicate what life would have been like in the war rooms; this does a very good job. One can appreciate the cramped, hot, smoke filled...More

Great show. Good if you like graphic design and travel posters, interior design, transportation (boats), and world history.

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

The queue in July will always be fairly long, but if you do one outing in the morning, have lunch nearby and then go to the War Rooms you should be ok. However, you absolutely must book online as this will cut your queue... More
