The Churchill War Rooms house the first national museum dedicated to Winston Churchill, where the exciting story of this great man is brought to life.
Incredible! The Churchill War Rooms were a surreal experience. The place still had the feel of being a functional bunker and the exhibits were excellent. The food at the cafe was delicious and relatively inexpensive, and each person gets a free audio guide on arrival. This one can't be missed!
In the basement of The Treasury - not the money, but a museum of WW2 and W Churchill. Original meeting rooms, bedrooms, offices as used by Churchill and The Cabinet during WW2. Plus a large, moderm museum on the life and works of Churchill. Self guided tour with audio guide for the War Rooms. Museum has some guides and lots of Audio/Visual displays. The War Rooms are excellent, and well presented. The Churchill part suffers from the gloomy underground rooms - when it could be in a more attractive setting. Toilets, cafe and large shop. Book online to avoid queues in summer.
We got there and they said the wait to get in would only be 45 minutes... We get to the front of the line after 2 hours of waiting and there is only twenty minutes till they won't let anyone in... Then they start letting people who bought tickets online get in before us.... So basically we have waited for two hours and they are letting people who have waited ten minutes get in before us because they bought there tickets online... So finally after two hours and 15 minutes we get in... With only an hour to tour the place... Overall a little boring for children but fine for adults... I would only recommend going without little children and very close to opening time to be able to enjoy and take time at the different areas of the place.
Great way to get in touch with some of Britain's WWII history. Conveys the sense of determination and danger braved by a determined nation and one of the greatest war time leaders of the modern day. You get a sense of the day-to-day lives of those trying to keep a country running while under siege as well as copious background and insight into Mr. Churchill himself.
I visited the war rooms with my brother and left the wives to do some shopping for an hour or two. We love anything to do with the war or British history, so this seemed like a good idea! It took us almost three hours to walk through the exhibit, listening to the audio commentary and reading the information boards. If you want to kill a few hours and learn something important - this is for you! There is so much we didn't know before this visit, and so much we now want to learn about this period of our history. It is captivating, informative and awesome! Visit now!
