This museum is very interesting, especially learning about Winston Churchill. There is a rather extensive museum in the middle of the visit, which makes this a tad too long so I recommend not spending too much time in the museum.

This is a quite remarkable slice of history. When the war ended, apparently everyone left to celebrate and never came back so the displays have an authenticity down to the casual books and even old candies left behind. One well placed bomb on this secret location "in plain sight" under key government buildings could have neutralized the entire brain center... More

Really exciting and very well cared for. It feels exciting to be in the very rooms occupied by one of Britain's famous figures. Loved the reparability of it all.

This is a worthwhile visit for anyone curious about WWII and English history. As someone of Irish ancestry, I viewed Churchill with less than worship despite his outstanding leadership against Adolf Hitler. This exhibit challenged and changed my perspective. It is a comprehensive exhibit covering Churchill's life from neglected childhood, through the ups and downs of successes and failures. It... More

I found this a fascinating insight into history. The map room and various rooms are fairly small, but the Churchill museum is a large room full of exhibits and a number of interactive ones

I took my son here when on a mini break in London. Wow it has to be one of the best museums. We loved every minute of it. And very thought-provoking.

If you are interested in what happened during WW2 then this is a must visit. Take the time to go around here properly and you will have a very enjoyable tour. I went with my wife and didnt plan it properly and couldnt spend as much time as we thought we needed. We went near the end of the day... More

Give yourself a couple of hours to go through. This is where Churchill ran the war. It has been left just how it was. The day the war was over they turned off the lights and left.

Not a stop for the weary, but definitely worth a visit. If you are interested in history, this is as close as it gets to traveling back in time. You can feel the presence of war and trying times. The space includes walking through exhibits so less popular hours might be preferred. Visited around 3 PM and the crowd was... More

I love seeing attractions like this, it really does make you proud to be British. This was a different age when everybody pulled together , certainly not the case now for many different reasons , but one sticks out. We booked in advance and although it was a Friday experienced no queuing . The war rooms are very well laid... 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.
