What to expect

No other London tour offers a journey into the Churchill War Museum along with a guided tour of the war rooms, left untouched since 1945. These are the original wartime bunkers that offered shelter to Prime Minister Winston Churchill and his government during World War II. Take this opportunity for a captivating look at London life during the war in the company of a Blue Badge professional guide. Your tour will begin in the streets of Westminster, where you will admire such iconic London sites as 10 Downing Street, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. The last leg of your tour is to the Cenotaph, originally constructed as a memorial to the First World War, now the national monument to all fallen British soldiers. You'll also encounter the statue of Sir Winston Churchill and the monument to women in World War II. Your guide will offer insight into how the people of London endured wartime. In Churchill's Cabinet War Rooms – the nerve center of wartime strategy and planning in WWII – you will encounter an underground complex of rooms that once quivered with heavy shelling as well as around-the-clock strategies and secrets that cracked the enemy's communications and mapped the army's movements. Your guide will leave you at the Churchill Museum as you continue your visit, listening in on the top-secret conversations between Churchill and President Roosevelt in the Transatlantic Telephone Room.

Unfortunately, this tour can not accommodate guests in wheelchairs or with any disability requiring special assistance.
