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.

Winston Churchill's London and The Churchill War Rooms - A Private Tour.
Richard was an excellent guide, showing us all of the Mayfair homes where Churchill lived, recounting Churchill's childhood, and climb to prominence, which I recalled from reading the Andrew Roberts biography of Churchill. He pointed out Churchill's personal items in the War Rooms to be sure to spot, and it was fun to find them--the pocket watch, the pistol. Thoroughly enjoyable tour, Richard; we loved it! Can't wait to see your home town of Cowes!

Richard was an amazing tour guide- personable and extremely knowledgable and pleasant. It was by far the best private tour I've had and would highly recommend to anyone looking for an intellectually stimulating and learning experience. He made Sir Winston come alive for us! I can't wait to come back again. Gabe and Cathy Rizzi #lovedit!

Our guide, Pepe, made the tour informative and fun. In spite of being a busy day in the City, NYE, he kept the group safely to the Churchill bunkers. The self guided tour was quite interesting.

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.
