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.

Historical London Walking Tour in Westminster & Churchill War Rooms Entry
Interesting to go back in time and see Churchill war headquarters. My grand son enjoyed to see the guards on the horses. But a lot of walk and I expected to see Westminster which we didn’t.

Westminster 3 Hour Walking Tour & Visit Churchill War Rooms
Our tour guide was excellent. Her diction and clarity were outstanding. The tour took us to more unexpected sights than we thought we would see. Memorable historic sights. Monuments. The changing of the guard. St. James park. The Central Park East Avenue of London. Homes of the rich and famous. Government buildings. Trafalgar Circus where we saw the celebration of the Women’s Football World Cup. A great tour

Westminster 3 Hour Walking Tour & Visit Churchill War Rooms
This was an interesting tour & the guide was great (Christopher). It would be better if a few more sights were included to make it feel we'd seen more of the places noted on the tour details.

Winston Churchill's London and The Churchill War Rooms - A Private Tour.
If you are a Winston Churchill fan this is the tour for you. Very detailed information on his life. Loved going into the shirt and cigar shop. The Churchill War Museum at the end is a good way to put everything in perspective. Excellent way to spend the day in downtown London.

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.
