What people are saying about Churchill War Rooms

★★★★★ Ticket experience was seemless, no waiting to enter the War Memorial

Excellent tour which is well planned and produced, definitely worth the cost. Having it located in the historic war rooms adds to the authenticity.

★★★★★ Really fascinating place with lots of interesting information

Thoroughly enjoyed this attraction. Felt a little claustrophobic by end of trip around the building - mainly due to limited space and other guests creating bottleneck areas. Learnt lots and loved hearing from people who were actually part of life in the war. Would definitely recommend this to any visiting London as easy to get to.

★★★★★ All of London wrapped up in one day but it moves At a fast pace.

Excellent tour that I would highly recommend. But, because Lending is such a busy city with lots of traffic, we found ourselves out of the bus and huffing it to the next venue. I love the walking but it was difficult for some.
