What people are saying about Churchill War Rooms
We had Chris as our guide. He was knowledgeable, engaging and considerate of the group’s needs. It was a terrific experience which our family of two adults and one college-aged son really enjoyed. Would highly recommend this tour even for folks who have been to London several times but have never had an ‘insider’ view of the history. Thank-you Chris!!
Our tour guide, David, was very informative, entertaining and made the visit thoroughly enjoyable. The walk around BigBen/Parliament/Westminster Abbey was loaded with historical facts necessary to understand the context of the war rooms. The war rooms are well preserved and the audio tour has an excellent balance of facts and brevity.
Our tour guide was called Henry and he was brilliant. He was knowledgeable, funny and very friendly. The tour was amazing and the information really brought the history to life. Thank you Henry
Knowledgeable tour guide except knowledge of Jousting as reason for driving on the left :-). Jousters ride to the right of the barrier. Just a friendly rib here. He was good.
Fantastic service . We used many of the different lines. All the guides were lovely , cheerful, funny and very welcoming. Great entertainment as we saw all of London
