The war rooms are a solemn way to understand London during the blitz. The Churchill museum is great, but the other rooms really give a sense of what it was like to serve in Britain's war HQ. Full of original artifacts, and in the main...More

If you are travelling to London this is a must see. I would recommend booking online at least 24hrs before your visit, otherwise you could be queuing for over 1hr for your ticket. Once in the displays/rooms are extremely informative. We spent over 2.5 hrs...More

We were amazed how authentic and fully intact the Churchill War Rooms are! Wonderful glimpse into WWII history. I recommend buying tickets online in advance, queues were over an hour wait.

We heard about the War Rooms through fellow travelers, and decided to take a walk through. What a treat! The entire museum was well laid out, easy to follow, and very informative. It was a wonderful history lesson about a remarkable gentleman.

Frozen in time from 1945, this is a starkly well-preserved view of the Cabinet War Rooms, from where the war was run under steel beams and layers of concrete to protect from German bombs...buy tickets on-line and avoid the lengthy queues...

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
