It was a last minute decision to go to the Churchill War Rooms. We loved it. Loved the Winston Churchill exhibit. I wish we could have had more time to explore the attraction. Would definitely go back.

Queued in the rain for an hour to get in but it was definitely worth the wait. The free audio guide was particularly useful, as it not only talked through the history of each room, but guided us on to the next exhibits. A large...More

See the control center for the British during WWII. There is a whole section dedicated to Churchill; I learned many things about him I didn't realize until I came here. They said when the war was over, they just left most of that stuff where...More

Being in the underground bunker where Churchill and his advisors spent time during WWII was pretty incredible. It was easy to lose yourself in the historical accuracy of what you were viewing. The Museum had been expanded since we were there 8 yrs ago. I...More

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
