Our teen sons spent more than two hours with us touring the rooms on our first day in London. Highly recommended for those interested in history, current events, and willing to spend time reading and thinking about WWII.

Enriching exhibits walk viewers through the life and legacy of Sir Winston Churchill. The audio guides and narratives help to depict the challenging events which occurred and also to gain insight of the brilliant mindset and strategy of a true leader in crisis.

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
