10 Downing Street

This has been the residence of all British prime ministers since 1905 and has become an iconic building for all visitors to London.

Houses of Parliament

Some of London's most turbulent history has taken place between the Houses of Parliament, also known as the Palace of Westminster. Guy Fawkes, the fire of 1834...

Cabinet War Rooms

This is where Churchill and his Cabinet Ministers hid in while London was bombed during the Second World War, and where Britain's military strategy against Germany was conceived.

Transatlantic Telephone Room

The top secret room looks exactly like something out of a James Bond movie - indeed, this is where the British government made their communications to the Americans during the war.

Monument to Women of World War II

The bronze monument on Whitehall was unveiled in 2005 and recognizes British women's potential in the workforce. In the WWII, they were integral in the manufacture of munitions.

What People Are Saying About Churchill War Rooms

Fascinating insight into managing the war effort and Churchill

Exceptionally well organised exhibition, the interviews with people who manned the facility during the war brings to life the tension and determination of the team lead by Churchill, to repel the threat of a Nazis invasion and overthrow the facist regime terrorising Europe.

Strength and fragility, a moving reminder of so much owed to so few.

Why the site stayed entombed for 40 years remained a mystery. Also the precise intervals when it was used by the principals, whereas it was seemingly used by staff to the very end, Aug. 45. But it is a remarkable preservation and reconstitution, fully conveying for the future the drama, tenuousness and how much hung in the balance in those years, with Churchill of course central. Fascinating in its detail and awesome in its atmosphere, we feel this tribute to Britain's "finest hour" is not to be missed.

Excellent museum but entry to venue involves slow queuing

Worth every penny, but there is no fast entry for ticket holders and had to queue in the rain. That bit is poorly organised at peak/ busy periods.

Very interesting insight into the life of Churchill

Audio tape for the tour was very informative. It was amazing to have walked and been in the war rooms where Churchill walked. Very good day out. The tour was a birthday present for my husband and he certainly wasn't disappointed. Thank you

A wonderful presentation of an historic landmark.

Well presented and full of fascinating and interesting facts to make the whole story come to life however the four chapters are not easy to follow in sequence and could be better displayed in separate sections to make the visitor more easily follow the story in the right order. Nevertheless a wonderful experience.
