I really enjoyed our visit to the War Rooms. Be sure and buy your ticket(s) online though. The queue was really long. I’d recommend using the headsets so that you get in-depth insights as you walk through the maze of underground bedrooms, offices, etc. Seeing...More

This was a very interesting exhibit-A lot of history given through a variety of media. Loved being able to see life on the bunkers and hearing some of the stories of those who worked for Churchill. Definitely check it out.

War Rooms were amazing but half waythrough take a break in the cafe so you can recharge and finish the last part without fading

Luckily we booked tickets online and saved an hour wait in the queue. Worth a visit to see the underground rooms, but I skipped some of the Churchill museum as I found it a bit boring.

A unique insight into what it might have been like to be at the heart and soul of Britain's defense in WW II. It can get somewhat crowded and one might consider getting tickets in advance and arriving early in the day.

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
