I am not a huge war buff, but thoroughly enjoyed the war rooms and museum. I spent two hours, but could have spent much longer

The war rooms are certainly worth a visit and the audio guide is made all the more interesting by recorded interviews with staff who worked there. Most surprising is how spartan the rooms are and only one floor below ground. This is not a purpose...More

WE visited the War Rooms whilst in London for a few days on a mini break. This is well worth the visit and even more so, if you use the 2 for 1 vouchers from the train journey. The information is excellent and they guides...More

If you like history this is a must. Bigger and nicer than I expected, it was quite fascinating. Went after Westminster Abby as they are an easy walk from each other.

This was an easygoing tour through the actual rooms that the Prime Minister, military leadership and other English leaders would go during the bombing raids. The rooms are as they were with furniture, maps, etc. A few mannequins, as officers or soldiers are staged to...More

The history and the ability to retain the original conditions of a bygone era really enhanced our experience. You could see the cramped conditions and then learn about it in the museum. You could lose hours here learning and listening. My mobility impaired friend was...More

This was by far the best historical museum we visited. It made you feel like you were actually there during the time it was in use. The Movie Churchill was something I watched after going to this museum and it really brought the whole thing...More

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

The average time is two hours if you follow the audio guide through the exhibit. However, you can certainly adjust that to your schedule/liking. We tend to get through museums a little faster than some because I find the... More

I think it depends on the venue. Some it works, some it doesn't. I can tell you, I bought the War Rooms ticket online, and bypassed the line, and it was great because it was raining cats and dogs that day.
