Discover Churchill's War Rooms the nerve centre of Britain's last stand against Nazi forces, a world of spies and strategy that forever left its mark on the history of Europe.
Churchill's War Rooms
London stood alone in the 1940s, under the bombardment of the blitz, a glimmer of hope which centred on one small sliver: the bunker where Prime Minister Winston Churchill and his government plotted victory.
And today you can visit the epicentre of this momentous moment in history, which today has been conserved as the "Churchill War Museum". The war rooms themselves have been left untouched since 1945 and combined with various exhibitions full of artefacts from the time you'll get a true feeling for life in the bunker, and the horror of London during the blitz.
But first, the tour meets in the streets of Westminster, taking a guided tour that passes by 10 Downing Street, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, as well as the Cenotaph: the monument to all those fallen in both World Wars. You'll almost be able to hear the bombs fall as you follow in the footsteps of the government of the time, retreating to their bunker to continue their vital work.
In the War Rooms, you'll get an audio-guide, to take you around this unique piece of history, frozen in time. You'll learn all about the tense and feverish days and nights during the Second World War, how life and government continued underground, and how the defeat of Hitler was planned and executed.
Then after two and a half unforgettable hours, we'll re-emerge to the light of day and put an end to the tour.
