Churchill War Rooms, London: 40 reviews and 50 photos

  Entrance to the Cabinet War Rooms
by rexvaughan

This is a fascinating group of rooms which constituted the underground headquarters of the British government when London was under attack. It is fortified with 3 foot thick walls of concrete and of course is under ground and accessible during the war only from the offices above. Everything was left in place at the end of the war so you walk through a 1945 time warp and see where Churchill slept and even his chamber pot. It is an interesting and educational view of the map room and the nerve center of England's war effort. Admission is around 5 pounds.

The entry shows the way it probably looked during WWII with sandbags still fortifying the door and front walls.

Address: End of Charles Street about 200 yds off Whitehall
Directions: Tube: Westminster. Near Downing Street. It is fairly well signed.
