from £47 per person

Tour Highlights:

  • Leave the crowds behind; our groups are limited to 25 people or fewer per guide.
  • This is the only guided tour available of the incredible Churchill War Museum, housed in the “Churchill War Rooms”, the original wartime bunker that sheltered Prime Minister Winston Churchill and his government during the WWII blitz of London.
  • An audio guide (provided) will lead you though the Churchill War Rooms, which have been left unchanged since 1945.
  • Discover the fascinating secret world of espionage and governments in exile during WWII.

Your walking tour begins in the streets of Westminster. We’ll take in classic London sites such as 10 Downing Street, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. The last stop on our walk is the Cenotaph, which was originally built as a memorial for the First World War and is now the UK’s primary national war memorial. We’ll come across the statue of Sir Winston Churchill and the monument to the women of WWII. Hear about the governments and royal monarchs who were forced into exile in London as Germany overtook the nations of Europe. Your guide will share interesting and enlightening insights as to how the people of London coped during the years of war.

Next, it’s time to head underground, down the steps to the wartime bunker of the Churchill War Rooms, where we’ll enjoy a guided visit of the Churchill Museum. The bunker is a unique piece of living history, an underground maze of rooms that once buzzed with round-the-clock planning and plotting, strategies and secrets. Your guide will bring the unique atmosphere to life for you. Learn the true stories about what life was like for those who worked in these dark rooms during the tense days and nights of the Second World War as they deciphered enemy communications and created maps of the army’s movements. At the Churchill Museum, your guide will share fascinating details and stories about the incredible life and legacy of Sir Winston Churchill and you will be able to hear real audio of his inspiring wartime speeches.

Here, your guide will salute you as your experience conclude with an audio guide tour of the rest of the war rooms, preserved exactly as they were left the day the lights were switched off in 1945!
