Churchill War Rooms

Greet your guide at a central London location and embark on an explorative walking tour of London’s WWII-associated sights. Receive an interesting introduction to the impact World War II had on the English capital, and see buildings partially destroyed by the devastating Blitz bombing. 

Marvel at iconic London attractions like Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, and 10 Downing Street, and then capture photographs beside a statue of deceased British prime minister, Winston Churchill. 

Bid your erudite guide a fond farewell and descend into the Churchill War Rooms to explore the underground labyrinth independently. Pop in your audio guide to hear of how the network served as hastily constructed government offices during World War II; listen to audio recordings of Churchill’s inspiring wartime speeches and delve into every aspect of his life as you explore the Churchill Museum.

Next, navigate the underground maze of the war rooms and hear of top-secret conversations that changed the course of history. After enjoying the war rooms for as long as you like, return to sea level and continue exploring London at your own pace.

Extremely disappointed with this service! Will never use it again!!
Babette_A
, Jun 2022
The starting point for the tour was confusing as it was our first time in London. We were late and the tour guide had already left. I called the help number and the person was absolutely no help. She said there was no way for us to meet up with the group at any other place. We couldn’t even meet them anywhere at the Churchill War Rooms museum so we didn’t get to tour there either. Ridiculous! No refund of course! Do not use this service!!

False advertising - very disappointing
Susan_W
, Jun 2022
You advertise a small group tour and specify the maximum number on the tour. You exceeded that number by several people and the much larger group made it impossible to hear the input of the tour guide, which was the point of the tour. The larger size did not have any small mike for the guide or ear phones for your guests to address the challenge and the guide often crossed the street both against a safe walking light and so quickly that lights changed and the larger tour could not stay together as the tour guide kept speaking to the small number that could physically remain close to him. There is no quality control or truth in advertising in your company given our experience.

Awful Experience
Helen_F
, Jun 2022
Arrived for this much anticipated tour along with others that had booked. No guide arrived. Phoned to learn tour cancelled as no guide was “available”. No notification to any of the parties booked. No apology or recourse. Extremely unprofessional and unacceptable behavior. Will never trust this tour site or tour company again in London.

When I arrived at the meeting place at the specified time no guide was there. After waiting approximately ten minutes I contacted the tour company via the telephone number provided and was notified that the tour was canceled because a guide could not be provided. Two other families were also waiting. I was assured I would get a full refund from Viator. I will follow-up to ensure I do get refunded the cost for 3 adults for this tour that did not take place

Great Informative Tour

Terrific tour! Our guide, Georgie, had twice the number of participants due to illness and handled it fantastically. Walking tour itself was very informative. Georgie was knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. Recommend war room tour for any WWII buff. Would do again!

We were the only couple on the tour and our guide was very patient because we walk slowly. He was full of stories about parliament, Big Ben and the other buildings. We enjoyed seeing the Churchill War Rooms very much as well as the Museum there. We highly recommend this tour.
