Transport yourself back in time to a city braced for the outbreak of war at the Imperial War Museums’ attraction that was formerly a secret WW2 bunker.
The Churchill War Rooms gives visitors the opportunity to explore the fascinating bunker that served as the Prime Minister’s command centre throughout the Second World War, as well as a workplace to hundreds of service men and women.
The audio tour provides in-depth commentary of the many corridors, meeting rooms and living quarters, painting a vivid picture of what life entailed for those involved. The fact that the rooms have remained more or less untouched adds to the experience, immersing audiences in the history of the place.
Give yourself a couple of hours to wander through the interactive Churchill Museum which explores the history of the former Prime Minister’s family life and career in politics in the lead up to the war.
A thoroughly interesting and educational tour for all ages, the War Rooms are an absolute must.
