Meet Your Guide

The tour begins at Victoria Embankment, from where your guide will lead you to Westminster, the political heart of London. Your expert historian guide will lead you through the neighbourhood that holds the history of Winston Churchill and World War II-era Great Britain.

Westminster, Big Ben, Parliament, and More

On this guided walking tour, you will pass many of London's great sites. See the great Westminster Abbey where many of England's most famous names have been married or buried.

As you get closer to the River Thames, you will see London's iconic clocktower, Big Ben. Take in the grand Parliament building where Churchill spent many of his days, leading the English government.

At 10 Downing Street, you will see Churchill's home while in office. Still the home of the Prime Minister to this day, it is one of the UK's most important abodes.

Churchill's War Room Bunkers

The next stop is the incredible relics of World War II in Britain. Inside the Churchill War Rooms, immerse yourself in the stories and emotions of the life and death decisions being made below ground with an official audio guide.

As London was being bombed in 1945, Winston Churchill instructed his ministry, officials and family to enter a secret underground bomb shelter below the heart of Westminster. All left in the same position as it was 75 years ago, see the hanging maps and detailed plans of the D-Day invasion.

In the official meeting rooms and offices, observe how ministers and secretaries were able to communicate with the outside world. See how D-Day was planned, leading to the eventual defeat of Hitler and the Nazis.

Beyond the military and rooms of official business, explore life below ground. See the bedrooms of Churchill, his family, and ministers, still with beds made. Take in the small kitchen that fed the team tasked with protecting the free world from fascism, Nazism, and Hitler.

Churchill Museum

Lastly, explore the Churchill Museum. Home to over 800,000 artifacts describing the history of Winston Churchill and 20th- century warfare, the Churchill Museum located next to the War Rooms is a must- visit for any history buff. Explore the interactive exhibits learning stories from across World Wars I and II from those who were present, and the relics left behind.

We had a lovely afternoon. We were not aware there was an hour and a half walk first through Westminster area before we got to the worries but our guide was very informative and humourous and we enjoyed the whole afternoon. The war room pretty amazing.
