10 Downing Street

This has been the residence of all British prime ministers since 1905 and has become an iconic building for all visitors to London.

Houses of Parliament

Some of London's most turbulent history has taken place between the Houses of Parliament, also known as the Palace of Westminster. Guy Fawkes, the fire of 1834...

Cabinet War Rooms

This is where Churchill and his Cabinet Ministers hid in while London was bombed during the Second World War, and where Britain's military strategy against Germany was conceived.

Transatlantic Telephone Room

The top secret room looks exactly like something out of a James Bond movie - indeed, this is where the British government made their communications to the Americans during the war.

Monument to Women of World War II

The bronze monument on Whitehall was unveiled in 2005 and recognizes British women's potential in the workforce. In the WWII, they were integral in the manufacture of munitions.

Fascinating,Pre booked so thought we could go straight in!

Once in it was fascinating,even though we pre booked we still had to wait over an hour in a queue,which spoils the visit,good job it was largely a dry day otherwise it would have been a disaster.

The exhibition was excellent, interesting & informative.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. It was so interesting & informative. Well presented. Enjoyed lunch in the canteen too which was very reasonably priced & delicious. It was a great experience.

Detailed - you need time to absorb it all.

Excellent exhibition. It is advertised as taking 2 hours to take the tour (with an audio guide) and you certainly need all of that to get the most out of it. Pointless doing if you haven't the time to spare.
