I enjoyed this attraction very much. It gave you an idea of what it was like for the English during WWII and there were quite a lot of artifacts and examples of items from that time. They also had a great little movie showing clips...More

Massively overpriced (£11.45 for an adult) - me and my fiancee got in using a 2 for 1 discount voucher I found on the web and we still felt ripped off. First section is a recreation of an underground station cum air raid shelter where...More

My husband and I enjoy war history and we were looking forward to this visit; However, we were beyond disappointed. It was small and uninteresting to say the least and very poorly put together. I would be ashamed to charge their prices for what is...More

Sorry to say but this really was a let down. At £10.45 (where did the 45p come from?) it did not live up to expectations or value for money. We walked through this experience feeling nothing, smelling very little & the highlight was seeing objects...More

Not the best war museum by a long shot, but for a small amateur museum its very good. As you enter theres a video to watch, which I can only assume is a professional documentary, its pretty long but has got some great old footage...More

Cost over £30 for a family ticket and one extra child. What's there is authentic and interesting but so little of it. Couldn't believe we'd seen it all in half an hour so not good value for money. Both my younger children (9 and 11)...More

Before you go BEWARE. They are so stingy that they won't allow you the web discount voucher price unless you print off one for every single member of your party! How pedantic can you get? It is not cheap and the Imperial War Museum is...More

Too expensive for such a short presentation. The movie at the beginning is very good and is shown in a room that looks like a shelter. You then move to another room (really 2 rooms) with a lot of artifacts. Spend your time in here...More

Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
