Great for a historian, good for others. It is an interesting exhibit for about 1/2 hr then it gets boring.

So for history buffs this would make you happy, self audio guided tour, so much history information and to see how they lived underground was interesting and what Winston Churchill was as a young man and his political history, so I would recommend it if you are a WWII history buff

Fascinating to think this was the actual place used by Churchill for cabinet war rooms. Seeped with history and informative and interactive, plan to spend a few hours here. Would perhaps not be as interesting for children who aren't enthused by this period of history. The audio guide is fantastic and includes lots of information.

I visited here with a school group and had I not gone with them, I might have never known this place existed. Tucked away, and in perfect condition. It's like you're just waiting for the team to come back at any second.

I had been here 15 years ago, but decided to return, and I'm very glad I did. It's really two tours in one - the War Rooms and The Churchill Museum -- the latter is relatively new. I enjoyed the Churchill museum more in that it was more informative. I also really liked the layout -- starting with his most... More

A must see experience in London. Not a fake museum but the actual place where Churchill and his advisors ran the war. Fascinating in every way.

This is one of those amazing museums that everyone has to see. You will leave wondering how World War II was ever won with such archaic and basic lack of technology. A black telephone; tapping on a machine; typewriters; bare underground barracks; etc. etc. Take the kids. I always return here when I go to London. The marvel of how... 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.
