Churchill War Rooms
In 1940, shortly after becoming what would become Britain's most celebrated Prime Minister, Churchill stood in the War Cabinet Room and declared: 'This is the room from which I will direct the war'.
Today your family can step back in time to explore these secret headquarters where Churchill and his vital staff helped change the course of history. Awe inspiring stuff!
You can hear the stories of the political staff who walked the maze of corridors beneath the bombing of London; see where Churchill and his dedicated War Cabinet met, often late into the night (when modern politicians would have been lounging at The Ivy!); and look through the lens of history into the Map Room, where the books and charts have remained exactly where they were left in 1945. You can't get closer to time travel!
In the Churchill Museum you're invited to explore the magnificent man behind the iconic image as you and the kids discover more about the influences and pressures that shaped Churchill’s life and work. A fantastic extra credit trip for kids covering politics in school but equally an excellent start if you can get the younger ones interested.
Plus of course location wise you can't get any better for launching further family activities - there's loads around our capital to do from an Imax to Waxworks to nigh endless museums, so why not hit our listings afore ye go and be sure of a full day of fun!
