Very educational and neatly done

There is so much here to see. Very educational and interesting. Not so much for small kids, but teens and up should enjoy this. This is included in the London Pass also.

This museum was pretty awesome, especially if you are a fan of WWII history. It gives an amazing history of churchill himself from childhood to death, and shows you the operation center used to bring the allies victory in WWII. The map room is remarkable with maps being used as wall paper to strategies all war efforts. It cost about... More

Wow. Really. It's a six. If you are familiar with any U.K. history, interested in Churchill or in WWII this is a must see. There is a massive amount of information to take in. My favorite was Churchill's siren suit (LOL!). I had no idea his mother was American. The stories of all the lives lived in these rooms and... More

Very expensive (around 35 USD) to get in. Great exhibits on the history of Churchill and the war rooms. Pretty well laid out. Really need to be a serious WWII or history buff to feel like you get the money worth.

The Churchill war rooms gave me a better understanding not only of what occurred during WWII but the conditions endured in the service of others. There is also a marvellous interactive museum focusing on the life of Churchill, an enigmatic character. To see the rooms as they were left ang to experience life below the ground was a moving experience.

Great for history buffs. You can move through at your own pace, spending more time in certain areas. Great audio guide as you walk through. Since small areas in museum they only allow certain amount of people in at a time. Didn't have a long wait but can imagine may be waiting during peak tourism.

The sheer detail and excellent layout of this amazing piece of history is beyond words. It seemed a little expensive when we arrived and we hesitated as we only had a couple of hours. This was not in fact long enough as there is so much to see and it is so engaging. I would suggest therefore that you leave... More

I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this museum. There are two parts to it; the war rooms, which contain a map room which remains exactly as it was left the day the war ended, and a room with a history of Churchill's life. We spent so long in the room about his life we had to rush... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Churchill War Rooms and Churchill Museum on our recent trip. Since my dad served in WWII, it was special to learn more about that time. Well done audio guide and interactive displays in the Churchill museum!

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.
