Create an itinerary including Churchill War Rooms
At Churchill War Rooms, see how Winston Churchill and his inner circle directed the British war effort from this bunker complex. In the Cabinet War Rooms, which served as Churchill's living quarters, look for the chair--with scratch marks on its arms--in which Sir Winston sat while strategizing with his closest advisers. The books, color-coded telephones, and documents on desks in the Map Room remain just as they were when the bunker emptied on August 16, 1945. Moving on to the Churchill Room, see where Churchill slept while in the bunker. In the Churchill Museum, learn all about the life of the leader who guided Britain through one of the most trying periods of its history. The site does not have a cloakroom, so expect to carry or wear whatever you bring with you.

  • So interesting and so much potential, but they let too many people in at once. The corridors are narrow, and it was difficult to navigate the crowds. Then they evacuated us all, reason never given...

  • A bit pricey but interesting to see. They have audio guides to show you different rooms. I feel like they added a lot of rooms to justify the price. I would have preferred a condensed version...

  • Neat historic spot right in the middle of downtown London. The bunker has been nicely upkept to preserve the history. The audio guides for the tour do not require headphones. I do recommend the audio tour, as it nicely complements the walk through. You can move at your own pace. We took a teenager and he enjoyed the history of WWII. We also caught a neat parade as we were leaving.
  • A friend recommended we go here and we are so glad that we did! This was our favourite of the WW2 historical stops. They do a great job in telling the story and making history interactive. Very impressed. We attended on a weekday and pre-purchased our tickets. Minimal wait time on the queue. Well worth your time.
