The Churchill War Rooms Museum was not on my family's radar until our friends gave us rave reviews of the place. They spoke so highly of the museum that I thought I would be disappointed, but the Churchill War Rooms were able to deliver. The corridors of the bunker can be a little claustrophobic but if you get there early... More

My husband is a huge WW2 buff, and even though I'm not as into history, we both had a great time visiting this museum. Did not take up much time and was very educational. If you have the time, it is an excellent attraction.

Arrived early for this museum. It is amazing how the British military planned their war efforts from this location. I enjoyed the CWR and would recommend you add it to you things to do in London.

The museum was official open by Her Majesty. It is interesting to see how history was made beneath this underground command centre and how tight space he operate with probably hundreds of man and woman who fought shoulder to shoulder with him to win the war. It's just an eye opening experience.

Be prepared to spend a full day here or break it up into chunks as there is so much to take in. A huge amount of history and some of the old smells still linger.

The war rooms are exactly as they were in 1945. The history, the information, the ambiance of the exhibition is breathtaking. The information regarding how to view the War Rooms is excellent. This is probably the best exhibition I have ever seen. It is probably easy to miss - DON'T MISS IT! there is a separate Churchill museum which is... More

We arrived at 9.45 on a Sunday morning and had to wait about 15 minutes to get to the door, they obviously keep an eye on numbers going in which is a good idea but can lead to quite long queues later in the day. I was using a voucher but it looked like if you bought tickets online you... More

WOW!!... so much history down in the war rooms... Great place to learn more about just what went on down there during the war. Heaps of interactive displays... very easy to navigate your way around..... stop and look at all the displays, and archives... you'll learn so much.

This is a great exhibit that explores the life of Winston Churchill, and more specifically, his involvement with WWII. We found it to be extremely interesting, but I would recommend breezing through the "museum" section so you aren't too tired for the remaining rooms (we thought the Museum was the end of the tour).

I really enjoyed the majority of the war rooms. You get a great sense of what was happening here all them years ago. But it was a bit over crowded and had some very narrow corridors, which was difficult and frustrating at times. Also, the layout of the museum part was a bit all over the place in my opinion,...

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
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 highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
