Fantastic display of the life of Churchill. So much history so well displayed in the original war rooms. Give yourself plenty of time, approximately 3 hours, and take your time. Don't forget to buy your ticket online before you go and print it out. The...More

The war rooms really put you in the situation the British faced during WWII. The bunker was preserved and the sensory experience really put you in the moment. Some of the details in the museum were a bit much but overall I would recommend it.

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Such a great tour and very authentic. Only negative the cafe had one member of staff serving, the poor girl was trying to serve and replenish stock including crockery, she was rushed off her feet and didn’t complain once either.

One of the best museum experiences I’ve had in London. OK I maybe biased as my Grandad helped build the war rooms in the late 30’s, but it was enthralling. You are given a phone to use for a commentary and it provided a great...More

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

If you queue up for a ticket that that day, it is for access at that time, online - you specify that time you require ie 11am. I hope this makes sense, suggest you book online as the queues for same day access are crazy
