We spent a very interesting and educational three hours here after queuing for about 30 minutes. (Worth noting that you can avoid this by booking beforehand). Audio guides were excellent and there was a good mix of interpretation and visual/audio information. The exhibition room was...More

Very impressive historical sight. The Churchill museum has loads of interesting details about his life. It was also very cool that the war rooms/bunker was furnished with statues and original pieces, this made the experience more lively, especially for children. The audio tour was also...More

It's hard to believe that some of the most influential and powerful spend so much time underground. This is a truly unique experience and I wish I had more time to spend here. The audio tour is excellent and very thorough. I also took time...More

It was quite an experience to walk through this bunker-type compound and imagine what it would have been like to be sequestered in this place during the Blitz. Great walkthrough of the rooms as well as the museum - beware that this is a common...More

We spent three hours touring the war rooms. They have an excellent exhibit on Churchill's life. The rooms and audio tour were very interesting. We bought tickets ahead of time online and breezed right in. October is great time to visit London without the crowds.

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

I went here for free because it was a trip from my university. Originally you have to pay £9 for a visit here. It was really good trip. But i think the ticket is too expensive. I won’t visit if I have to pay. But...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.

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

Absolutely! We went and tried to go one day, but the line was down the block! Because we didn't gave a set itinerary, I ended up buying tickets for the next day because the wait time was over an hour, and had gotten... More

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.
