Churchill War Rooms

Churchill War Rooms

Visit the Churchill War Rooms, part of Imperial War Museums, to discover the original Cabinet War Rooms, the wartime bunker which sheltered Churchill and his staff during the Blitz. These historic rooms once buzzed with planning and plotting, strategies and secrets, and today you can explore the underground headquarters to experience the secret history that lives on underground.


Discover the stories of the people who walked the maze of corridors as London was being bombed above them. See where Churchill and his War Cabinet met, sometimes late into the night, and look through the lens of history into the Map Room, where the books and charts have remained exactly where they were left on the day the lights were switched off in 1945. In the Churchill Museum, explore the man behind the image as you discover more about the influences and pressures that shaped Churchill's life and work.
