For anyone who takes an interest in World War 2, this is a fascinating location. A well thought-out route through the original layout. Descriptive, insightful and hugely poignant.

The War Rooms look just like they did in 1945. The self-guided audio tour is excellent, and you really get a feel for the tension of the era through the taped interviews with workers from the War Rooms. The museum was interesting for me but a bit long-winded for my teenage son. All in all, well worth the entry fee.... More

A different style of museum and a great eye opening to how Churchill and his cabinet etc ran the war from these underground cellers. We visited on a Saturday at the end of the school half term and unsurprisingly it was a little busy. As the museum is the actual cellar space it's a little cramped which wasn't helped by... More

This is a full day event. I managed for half a day and that still wasn't enough time to soak in all the history. This is a must see for any history buff, Churchill enthusiast, or the casually interested. There are some tight spaces, so just walk quickly through them if you are claustrophobic.

We had walked past the entrance several times before but assumed you had to book in advance (we did not). A great piece of history and we learnt a lot especially from the guide in the main war room area who drew a crowd of probably 30-40 people to listen to his talk, it was as if he had been... More

Kids thoroughly enjoyed the War rooms. Queuing was short and not too expensive. Very educational but a bit claustrophobic to start with. Would recommend just to see a part of our recent history.

In the basement of Whitehall. These bunkers were used as the command HQ during World War II. See the actual map rooms...with original maps! Sleeping quarters and private "offices" of Churchill & other officers. Incredible, thorough exhibits of Churchill's personal items & history as well as many other "only one in the world" displays. This area was closed off at... More

The entry fee is 19£ and free with the London pass. The guy at the entry that checks the bags was verry unfriendly so the visit started with the wrong foot. This is a bunker where u can see some room and if tou go moderatly fast you cnd visit it al in les than 45 minutes. For the same... 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.
