I loved it and I would recommend any history lover to visit this museum. I don't remember visiting any museum that was well documented like this one. You will have the opportunity to visit the war rooms, underground bunker, understand Winston Churchill's life and understand "the blitz" better. It gives a great insight on one part of WWII and how... More

I'm not a huge war buff (my partner is) but this was interesting and informative. It is a little bit on the pricey side, but £20 is about average in London for attractions. Much better than the London Eye or over rated attractions.

It was a long que getting in. It was not updated to 2017 standard. Old devises for stories. Staff not so energizing. Half way thru I reach the point of coma. For nerds only

We loved the Churchill War Rooms. The museum is full of interesting information and artifacts. Funny enough, our kids got to use a typewriter - they had to go to a museum to use a typewriter! The actual war rooms in the bunker are fascinating. It is amazing to think the war rooms were closed up after the war ended... More

Went there with my 21 and 17 year old. We all loved it. Fascinating to see the actual bunkers and think about what it must've been like to endure the blitz. The recorded tour (which you get with your admission) was very good and enhanced the experience. The Churchill rooms (part of the bunker complex but now converted to a... More

We had very short time to visit but it was great to be able to learn about Churchill and the time prior him being PM and while he was PM. This is a well preserved site, with all the original items still in its places including a tiny drawing of A. Hitler on a World map in one of the... More

Very fascinating exhibit about Churchills life and times, his family history, a glimpse of the private side of the man. Also this is a museum about the secret underground bunker and rooms that Churchill and other British and allied leaders used to strategize and plan out the war. A step back in time which would be especially interesting to young... More

We visited for our son's birthday by request and we spent an hour 45 mins there. We were able to see a lot , but I could have spent more time in the museum. It was all very interesting.

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.
