If you are limited in time the Churchill War Rooms are not necessary. Did the audio guide on our own.

If you like WWII history, this is a place to see. The Churchill exhibit gives you a fascinating look at who he was and the experiences that influenced his perspective. The War rooms are interesting to see and give you a feel for what it must have been like for everyone to be living and working in such close quarters... More

We got here early and went right in. Cost was about $22 including donation. Cramped spaces but not claustrophobic. Really glad we saw this part of history.

This was a surprising warren right under your feet. This took about 2 hours, but could be done quicker if required, not the cheapest attraction but not bad value when you look at cost for a couple of hours and it includes a free audio guide to guide you around. Don't forget to offer Gift Aid if your a U.K.... More

This place had so much history and made me feel like I was just a minute late in being right there during the time it was used. So interesting if you're into military history (which I am). I recommend this attraction highly!

Well worth a visit for anyone interested in a slice of British history. Not so much for others - my children would have rated it much lower. It gives a good - but static - glimpse of the war rooms function; and an excellent coverage of Churchill's life, including some aspects that are somewhat glossed over in his more flattering... More

This is a very well put together insight into the work performed behind closed doors and underground in London during WWII. The museum focuses in part on Churchill himself and his life story in addition to the crucial work that took place within the museum space during the war years. The highlight for me was being able to see the... More

This is an absolute must to visit in London. The War Rooms were left as they were at the end of WW2, so nothing is 'replicated' or 'imitated'. You get a real feeling of what it was like to live and work there. Since my last visit in 2005 all the displays have been added to and updated with lots... More

The Churchill War Rooms Museum was not on my family's radar until our friends gave us rave reviews of the place. They spoke so highly of the museum that I thought I would be disappointed, but the Churchill War Rooms were able to deliver. The corridors of the bunker can be a little claustrophobic but if you get there early... 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.
