  The Cabinet War Rooms
by easyoar

The Cabinet War Rooms were where Winston Churchill and his predecessor Neville Chamberlain spent a lot of their time during the Second World War. It is where a lot of the military plans were made, and the rooms here included living quarters for the most important government officials and military leaders. The rooms were made pretty bomb proof with a metre of concrete above them (this probably doesn't sound too much these days!).

The rooms are still set up as they were during the war time, and this includes the maps with the little slideing flags showing how armoured divisions were doing against the enemy.

These war rooms aren't cheap however. They cost 7.50 for an adult and 6 for a student or retired person. Children under 15 years of age are free. The are a very short walk from Whitehall and Downing Street. Follow the signs.
