Visit the Churchill War Rooms, part of London’s Imperial War Museum and learn about the life and legacy of Sir Winston Churchill. Leading Britain to victory in World War II, the former prime minister made use of a wartime bunker beneath the streets of Westminster. Use your entrance ticket to explore the historic rooms at your leisure, and visit the on-site Churchill Museum where multimedia exhibits bring the story of the great leader to life.
Make your own way to the Churchill War Rooms in Westminster and show your voucher to enter. The site is open between 9:30am and 6pm, with last admissions at 5pm.
Once inside, you’ll enter the world of Winston Churchill, the British statesman and prime minister who led Britain through WWII. His wartime bunker is now a piece of living history, home to a subterranean network of rooms where wartime strategies were formed and secrets were discussed.
Explore the historic war rooms at your leisure, and use an audio guide to learn about the key points of interest. The site is also home to the Churchill Museum, which uses modern technology and multimedia exhibits to tell the premier’s story from the day he was made prime minister in 1940.
Known as an inspirational orator, Churchill made powerful speeches during the war and you’ll hear some extracts with iconic phrases such as “we shall fight them on the beaches.” Another highlight of the museum is the original 10 Downing Street door that Churchill walked through after he became prime minister.
How long you spend in the museum is up to you, but most visitors find 1.5 hours to be sufficient.
Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!! If you are at all interested in WWII, this is a must see. I would allow for a minimum of 2 hours maybe even 3 hours if you plan to visit each room and do some reading. Tons and tons of information and wall laid out.
We spent several hours in the Churchill War Rooms. It is so interesting and so much to look at! So glad we did this tour!
I am a History buff. Great tour, plenty too see. Learned a lot.
if you love anything about WW2 or Churchill I highly recommend going. get there nice and early, like 15-20 minutes before 1st opening and go then. go get to see all without the crowd. this museum really chronicles the whole of the war and really much of Churchills life in a simple and easy way. see where the war cabinet slept and ate during the bombings, some of the strategies used, real life letters and other nostalgia.
We could have spent another 3 hours there . . . but not in one day! The knowledge was so compelling. One felt like they were living there with the Churchill group. Well done! The food in the canteen was
So fascinating to see the actual rooms where Winston Churchill and other important figures discussed the war and their plans. Loved the history of it and the back story on Churchill.
An outstanding insight to how Churchill managed the war and an in depth account of his life.
Two hour not enough for this visit.
Very interesting and authentic view into the life of Churchill during the 2nd world war as well as background into his life
What an amazing place..we had no idea it would be so large. allow plenty of time for your visit.
So much to see that if you are limited then you may find yourself scanning the place for what particularly interests you. Well worth a visit.
The Churchill War Rooms are fantastic. Having your tickets in advance is a must. It is like being inside of history. Don't miss this opportunity.
