The Cabinet War Rooms are shown exactly as they were left at the end of World War II, with everything from the furniture to maps to Churchill's cigar. This is where Churchill and his cabinet and staff used to go for safety during the Blitz...More

This attraction now combines two things: the old Cabinet War Rooms and the new Churchill Museum. The old War Rooms continue to be interesting but the museum is a terrible piece of junk. This museum does not let you hear the sound of Churchill's voice...More

Awesome frozen in time look inside Winston Churchill's bunker. Especially liked the in depth look at Churchill's life before the war.

The exhibition of the rooms where Churchill worked during the World War II is very interesting and the audio guide was good. Some sections were a bit crowded though, since the underground corridors are somewhat narrow. The ”war rooms” were more interesting than the parts...More

This should be added to your list of places to go. The place is very educational, interactive and fun. I went with my son and he loved it.

This is a must stop if you are interested in WWII history. Many of these rooms untouched from that period. If the walls cilia talk. Highly recommend-

Had lunch during visit. Was OK for what it was but have the feeling more could be done to improve the availability in what has to be said is limited surroundings.

Interesting tour with audio guide, taking you through the underground war rooms. Well laid out, but get there early to avoid the lines.

It is rather cramped in this facility though the information you can glean seems almost endless. The audio tour at times can be a little difficult to follow, but you can get happily lost in so many sub level galleries. One of my most favorite...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
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
