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.

What an incredible life. I loved Winston’s story before this visit only to love him so much more after. This would be a 5 star, except I found the scale of Info in the Churchill Museum (museum section only) was totally overwhelming. You would need a full day if not 2 to read each piece of information at the displays. I think it would have been great to have featured displays and rotate through the mass of info on a seasonal basis. Otherwise wonderful, amenities and the rest of the exhibit was fantastic. Thanks for having us team ❤️
Awesome museum, very informative and educational but also really fun. I loved the interactive elements of the museum. Great to see the history and dedication of such a great man! I think the museum is done really well for the amount of space that they have to work with. I also loved the fact that they managed to keep some of the rooms in original condition. Amazing that some rooms were untouched since the war.
