THe War Rooms are preserved exactly as they were, it is easy to imagine people working and interacting there. When I first saw the rooms in about 2002, the museum was not there and I believe there were more war rooms. NOw, there are fewer...More

It was fascinating to see what life was like underground and to experience just a sliver of what happened during WWII. The Churchill museum added excellent background as well. Well worth a visit!

Nice place to visit on a hot day to learn about some more minuscule but very interesting facts about Churchill's leadership in London during WW2

Very interesting audio tour of the war rooms and history of Winston Churchill. Can be a bit disjointed in the Churchill Museum but I was more interested in the underground bunker that is still well preserved to give you the feel of the times.

Descend the stairs and enter another era. In the quiet isolation, it is easy to imagine the circumstances surrounding this strange environment. Leave those in your party who are not history buffs to explore different London sites as the War Rooms have limited appeal for...More

We didn't realise we would spend so much time in the Churchill War Rooms! It was great to wander through and look at the reconstructed rooms and read all the information. The shop has some nice souvenirs. Be careful though if you have claustrophobia, especially...More

You can get in at a reduced rate with your train ticket and if you book on line will get past the inevitable queue which can be quite long as only a limited amount of space inside. We found it very interesting and even after...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

If you queue up for a ticket that that day, it is for access at that time, online - you specify that time you require ie 11am. I hope this makes sense, suggest you book online as the queues for same day access are crazy
