Churchill War Rooms and Westminster tour
About this experience
Come with us and visit the amazing Churchill War Museum, housed in the “Churchill War Rooms”, the original wartime bunker from where Winston Churchill and his government did run the operations during the WWII blitz of London.
This carefully designed experience will begin with a walking tour in the streets of Westminster, one of the areas of London that suffered more from WWII bombings. We’ll take in classic London sites such as 10 Downing Street, Whitehall, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. Our walking tour will end at Cenotaph, which was first built as a memorial for the First World War and is now the UK’s primary national war memorial. We will also pass by the statue of Sir Winston Churchill and the monument to the women of WWII
Our professional and friendly guide will take you back in time, telling you how the people of London survived during the years of war. You will almost see what life was during the Blitz, how they evacuated children to the countryside, the food rationing, and the bombing raids which destroyed large parts of the city. You will get to know how the government went underground to be able to continue working.
So we are going underground too! We will visit the wartime bunker of the Churchill War Rooms, where you’ll like an audio-guided visit to the Churchill Museum.
Enter this bunker is like going back in time: an underground labyrinth of rooms that once buzzed with round-the-clock planning and plotting, strategies and secrets. You will learn how Churchill and the government worked in these dark rooms during the tense days and nights of the Second World War as they deciphered enemy messages and made maps of the army’s advances.
At the Churchill Museum, you will find out captivating details and stories about the amazing life and legacy of Sir Winston Churchill. You will also listen to real audio of his moving wartime speeches. Thanks to the rich interactive exhibits, this museum will show you Churchill’s private and public life, from his love of his wife and of painting to his personal relationship with U.S. President Roosevelt.
The tour ends with the visit to the rest of the war rooms, maintained exactly as they were left the day the lights were switched off in 1945!
