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.

I'm not really a fan of historical war items but I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. They do have an elevator in the back to get downstairs for prams and wheelchairs. Once downstairs you can get your ticket from the counter. We booked our online so it was quite easy and fast. We had an audio guide for the facility. The guide was very informative and it was easy to skip things when it got too long-winded. But for the most part, it gave enough information so you learn something without getting bored. The tour started with walking around the ground and led to the museum. The museum itself had quite a lot of things to see. A few of them interactive. You can spend as much or little time as you wanted which was nice. I really enjoyed walking around the unchanged bunker areas underground. It was quite a nice informative adventure.
Keep Calm and Learn! Very educational. I knew basic things about Winston Churchill before I went to this museum and left with lots of great information. It was not overly crowded, but this museum is underground and in confined space..so it was hard to see everything due to people..and people don't pay attention to other people..as they are really focused on what they are looking at..which tells you there are great items and pieces of information. Somethings you had to touch buttons to learn more..and with all the viruses going around I skipped that..but the audio tour was good. It gave more information than just the signs. We paid £46.00 for 2. The guide book, we did not purchase as it was another $5.00. I did pick up 5 postcards for £3.00.
