Great place to visit to learn about Churchill and WWII. You will need to be patient as there is likely a wait to get in and there is a ton of reading inside. It is all very interesting though. If this sort of history interests you, this will be good use of your time.

Our visit to this attraction was much more than expected. You not only visit the war rooms, but you also have a very nice memorial room with memorabilia, pictures, quotes from Churchill. If you like history, especially WW 2 then you will enjoy visiting this site.

If you want to see history come to life then visit the Churchill bunkers. I am a huge Churchill fan and thoroughly enjoyed this walk through history. There is a reason this was the greatest generation and some of that character is on display.

I first visited the CWR shortly after it first opened and it has been greatly extended in it's content with an excellent museum area detailing Churchill's life and times. If you are interested in the history of this great man's life and the 2nd World War you should not hesitate to set aside a couple of hours for this visit.

Went with three teenagers, all girls, who enjoyed both the war rooms and the Churchill museum. Great exhibits with well done audio guide. Excellent!

first thing to say is that the war rooms & the Churchill Museum are fine: not up to the standard of the Imperial War Museum, but interesting to see the actual location. However, I was appalled at the way visitors are treated before going in. We had purchased tickets before our visit, but for some reason everyone is made to... More

From what you get told and what you see, it looks like it has been left pretty much untouched since 2nd world war. You really get a good feel for what it might have been liked. Our favourite place so far on our visit to London with kids.

With the wealth of old history around every corner in London this is a fantastic example of more recent but very important history. Excellent info on what was going on here and the critical part it played in WW2

Easy to get to from Westminster tube, you become immersed in the truly crucial importance of what went on there and what people who worked there went through. State of the art in museum presentation; can't recommend it enough.

It took me 5 times to go to London to make it to CWR, and it was an amazing experience. As I am in the middle of reading one of the Churchill's biographies, this was an excellent addition to my understanding of the role Churchill played in the world history. It was an interesting trip through time.

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.
