This was a really interesting stop on our trip to London. I was really interested in seeing the underground bunkers. It was a bit crowded now with all the popularity of “The Darkest Hour” so I would recommend getting tickets online to avoid longer wait...More

Buy your tickets ahead of time or expect to wait for over an hour. Also, give yourself at least 90 minutes to 2 hours to absorb all the information. Well worth it!

Very interesting and varied artefacts. Long queues. Not disabled friendly due to space restrictions.

We stood in line for over an hour but it was worth it. I highly recommend buying your pass online before you visit as you may only have to wait a few minutes from what we noticed. I couldn't get enough of this Imperial War...More

Give yourself plenty of time and do the audio tour to its fullest. It can get a little warm there, if the weather is nice outside, as it was for us. So interesting, though.

Very well done, and loved the orginal setup of the rooms with mannequins showing officers at work, really brought the war effort to life.

The Darkest Hour set is an exact remake of the Cabinet War Rooms. The Churchill Museum part of it is also really informative. There might be a long queue but it is worth the wait. Book in advance, if you can, though. We spent there...More

Plan on around 2-3 hours minimum in here! There is so much to learn about. Everything you could ever want to know about Winston Churchill is contained in this museum. We did this as part of the London Pass and it was well worth it!...More

A fantastic experience, well worth the wait. You need to allow at least two hours and ideally three, there is so much to look at. Apart from the war rooms themselves, which have been reasonably restored and carefully furnished ‘as was’, there is the museum...More

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

If you queue up for a ticket that that day, it is for access at that time, online - you specify that time you require ie 11am. I hope this makes sense, suggest you book online as the queues for same day access are crazy
