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.

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.

What people are saying about Churchill War Rooms

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Ticket experience was seamless, 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.

London: Churchill War Rooms Tour reviewed by Roland

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 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 walking but it was difficult for some.

London: Churchill War Rooms Tour reviewed by Linda

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Really fascinating place with lots of interesting information
Thoroughly enjoyed this attraction. Felt a little claustrophobic by end of a trip around the building – mainly due to limited space and other guests creating bottleneck areas. I learned lots and loved hearing from people who were actually part of life in the war. I would definitely recommend this to any visiting London as easy to get to.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Great Tour Guide & the only way to skip the line in Churchill’s War Rm
The tour guide gave a great overview of the City of Westminster, things I wouldn’t have seen just walking through myself. Churchill’s War room doesn’t have guided tours or skip the line entry – except for this tour, as far as I could find. When we got to the entrance, there was a long line but we walked right in – spending the past hour touring Westminster rather than just standing in the sun.
