About Churchill War Rooms

Dedicated to displaying the beating heart of British World War II operations, the War Rooms consist of the Churchill Museum and the Cabinet War Rooms. While the former explores and details the life of one of Britain's most recognised statesmen with fascinating insight, the latter gives interested visitors a glimpse into what life was like in the underground complex from which the British Government secretly attempted to manage Allied war efforts.


Having been shut down and locked up upon the surrender of the Japanese in 1945, it wasn't until the 1970s that the Imperial War Museum began preserving and cataloguing the contents of the War Room. This makes it a unique and intriguing visit for families and history buffs alike.

Very interesting

by Alysha Baker

Wasn't able to bring my mobility scooter but wheelchair was fine. Its a little tight to maneuver in places but overall a very good experience.
