The Basics

For anyone with an interest in WWII history or British politics, the Churchill War Rooms and Museum are an absolute must. They are divided into two areas: the original Cabinet War Rooms, including the all-important Map Room, and the Churchill Museum, which chronicles the life and work of the revered wartime leader. You can explore the exhibits independently with the aid of a complimentary audio guide. Some organized excursions combine entrance to the Churchill War Rooms with guided tours of Westminster Abbey and nearby WWII sites. London Pass holders get free entry to the Churchill War Rooms.

Private Tour: Westminster Abbey and Churchill War Rooms Combination Tour
This was one of the best tours we did. Flicc was a wonderful guide. She brought Westminster Abbey history to life and knew a lot about the historical figures buried or memorialized there. She took us to see the King Edward throne that was behind a rope that no one else was visiting. She kept our 12 year old and us engaged and interested with her lively discourse there and at the War Rooms. Well worth the money for the personal attention.

Jason was very knowledgeable and humorous and he did a great job getting us positioned for the best photo ops. He took our photos with the guard at Whitehall and personally took us to the War Rooms and got us situated before he left.

Westminster 3 Hour Walking Tour & Visit Churchill War Rooms
Jason was an exceptional guide. He was very articulate and knowledgeable about the attractions of our tour. The pace of the tour was excellent. We had frequent short stops to listen to Jason expound about a particular sight. I would highly recommend this tour especially if Jason is your guide. He is thoroughly professional.

Winston Churchill's London and The Churchill War Rooms - A Private Tour.
Richard’s stories of Winston’s early life really helped me understand the man he became. He also set up my visit to the War Rooms and the Churchill Museum. Allow time for this at the end of Richard’s tour. I easily spent two hours but could have taken much longer.

Sir Winston Churchill Private Walking Tour & War Rooms
Our guide Stephan was fantastic. Knowledgeable and funny without being obnoxious. He really knows his history. He took his time and showed things that weren't necessarily part of the tour, but added to the experience. Thanks Stephan for a great tour- hope you enjoyed the cigar!

A must if you are a history buff. Pepe was extremely knowledgeable and explained points of interest around town that as a history enthusiast you know are there, but don't necessarily show up on tourist maps. The Churchill War Rooms and museum are a wealth if information.

Exploring WWII History in London

The Churchill War Rooms are not the only attraction in town to delve into WWII history. The Imperial War Museum in Lambeth, South London, also features WWII-oriented exhibits. A stone’s throw away on the South Bank sits HMSBelfast, a warship that took part in the Normandy landings in 1944, while Parliament Square hosts a statue of Winston Churchill. Bletchley Park, the Victorian estate where British intelligence cracked Germany’s enigma code, is within day-tripping distance of London.
