Description
Churchill War Rooms
History that changed the world as we know it was made in the iconic Churchill War Rooms in Central London. In the underground basement of Churchill’s secret hideaway beneath the streets of Westminster, Churchill and his team strategized how to defy Hitler in the Second World War. From Churchill’s bedroom, to the huge Map Room, there’s plenty to experience at Churchill’s War Rooms. You’ll even get to see the scratches he gouged into his chair as tension mingled with cigar smoke in the cramped confines of the Cabinet Room. There is no better place to appreciate the defiance, improvisation, camaraderie and awe‐inspiring reality of those darkest hours.

The Cabinet War Rooms

During WWII, the Churchill War Rooms were a secret lair located deep beneath London’s streets that housed headquarters for the British Government. The original Cabinet War Rooms were constructed to shelter important government workers should bombs rain down on the city during the Blitz, and these quarters were the heart of Britain’s wartime government. During your visit to the Churchill War Rooms you can immerse yourself in the maze of historic rooms where secrets were whispered and strategies debated by wartime leaders.

The Churchill Museum

The Churchill Museum is housed within the Churchill War Rooms, and explores the man behind the very public image the former Prime Minister upheld throughout the war. The first major museum in the world solely dedicated to Sir Winston Churchill, it uses fascinating interactive displays and technology to explore Churchill’s world – from devoted letters he wrote to his wife, to photo and film clips of his early life.
