Churchill War Rooms, London

(4.5/5 based on 14,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This was truly fascinating in ways that are tough to describe. I'm not a history buff, but there were so many cool things about how the war was won from this underground location, and seeing how thing...  more »
  • Churchill war room. Is Tuesday, April 4, 2017 this Museum, shows us how a Government, but above all, women and men, lived during the blitz and the rest of the second world war, in this bunker. C ' is courageous and brave, spend the days a work, sometimes sleep on site, with audio guides everything we explain, with anecdotes sometimes hard or fun, it makes us "share" some of their daily lives. The second part of the Museum's focus was Mr. CHURCHILL his life as personal, that his political life, very interesting. do not to forget this part of our history which remains global. It's free with the pass.bonne visit london.

  • One of my favorite places visited in London. An absolute treasure trove of historical artifacts and priceless memorabilia from Churchill's life during the Battle of Britain. Highly recommended to anyone interested in either Churchill or WWII history.
  • I'm so glad we took the time to queue for this! It was very interesting. The museum part of it (strangely in the middle of the tour) was done very well with so much information about Churchill's life. Plan to spend a few hours here, for sure!
  • This museum includes the underground facility used by Churchill and his staff during WWII as well as a more informative section on Churchill's life, which is just as fascinating, and presented as a story. A great place to visit when in London, even if you're not a big fan of museums or history.
  • Very interesting place to visit. It's amazing to see the underground from where Churchill coordinate the English defense during the World War II. Tickets include an audio guide, also available in Portuguese. Accept the 2for1 Train Tickets offers.
  • Great museum. Really impressive how some rooms are unchanged since during the war. Worth a visit.
