What people are saying about Churchill War Rooms
Thoroughly enjoyable.... I would recommend doing an early tour and allowing as much time as you can for the War Rooms as there is so much to look at and absorb. Well worth a visit!
Our guide, Rob, was fantastic - we had the most amazing and informative tour of Westminster before the War Rooms, which was equally impressive.
Wonderful - a little crowded but moving nicely- You need a few visits to really get all the information and go through completely.
We really enjoyed our visit. Our group ranged from 11 to 64 and there was something for us all. Most informative and interesting. The commentary was excellent. I remember Churchill from my childhood. I always admired him. I loved the part where you could hear him speaking. What a Wit! We had a bite to eat in the cafe and thought it very reasonably priced. Thank you for a lovely day out
Excellent,well oraganised,thoughtfully conceived with key information at your own pace.
