Churchill War Roomstickets and tips

3 things worth shouting about:

  1. Located in the basement of London’s Treasury Building, this was the secret HQ of the British Government during World War II.
  2. The Map Room is really cool – you can easily imagine Churchill and the military bigwigs plotting victory.
  3. Churchill’s study is cracking – you see where he took his power naps and they’ve still got his papers, paintings and cigars.

Churchill War Rooms tips and tricks


Charlie says

"Give yourself enough time!"

The War Rooms are bigger than they first appear so you really do need the recommended 2-3 hours to see it all.


Jane says

"Recommend the audio guide"

An ideal visit for WWII buffs, the audio guide was great and gave plenty of highly informative information that helped us immerse ourselves in the authentic exhibits.

What to expect at Churchill War Rooms

The underground gaff that helped Britain win the war

Are you into history? World War II? How about Churchill? Anyone who nodded, listen up.

This 5,500 square foot complex was built in 1938 when war in Europe was definitely on the cards and the government needed a safe place to communicate with its forces round the world.

Run by Imperial War Museums, it’s really well thought-out and divided into different sections you wander through to get a real feel for what it was like when it was buzzing with all that wartime energy.

Get your Churchill War Rooms tickets here to see it for yourself!

For instance, the Cabinet Room is laid out with a row of three seats facing the PM – so Churchill could stare down the heads of the Army, Navy and Air Force. And in Room 60, you’ll see the huge switchboard where operators and typists worked all hours keeping Britain connected during the Blitz.

Turns out it wasn’t all work either. There’s some anti-Hitler graffiti in the Chiefs of Staff Conference Room and elsewhere, sunlamps staff used to strip off and stand in front of to give their bodies a boost after spending so long underground. Wonder if Winston joined in?
