At Churchill War Rooms, see how Winston Churchill and his inner circle directed the British war effort from this bunker complex. In the Cabinet War Rooms, which served as Churchill's living quarters, look for the chair--with scratch marks on its arms--in which Sir Winston sat while strategizing with his closest advisers. The books, color-coded telephones, and documents on desks in the Map Room remain just as they were when the bunker emptied on August 16, 1945. Moving on to the Churchill Room, see where Churchill slept while in the bunker. In the Churchill Museum, learn all about the life of the leader who guided Britain through one of the most trying periods of its history. The site does not have a cloakroom, so expect to carry or wear whatever you bring with you.

Churchill War Rooms Reviews
After coming to London dozens of times, we finally made time to see Churchill's War Rooms. There is so much to see in this "museum", that I definitely think you should allow at least 2 - 2 1/2 hours. ... more »
Was extremely interesting, but we had to get out quickly for a fire alert - false alarm as it turned out. Thought it was part of the experience!! more »
Really interesting museum. So much to read and look at you could spend hours in here. The museum of Churchill is fascinating charting his life. The way the museum allows you to walk in the foot steps of history with a very informative audio guide (included with the entrance fee) is really good.
This was a very interesting museum to visit. You have to have a timed ticket to get in, and because the museum is popular it is probably best to purchase them in advance. You go through security before entering the museum and then are given an electronic device that guides you through. This is a self paced tour, and you can easily spend a couple of hours here if you wish to explore everything. It is very near 10 Downing Street and St. James Park. It is also close to the Horse Guards.
