Churchill War Rooms and Westminster in WW2 Private Tour

Description

Saunter in the footsteps of iconic British prime minister Winston Churchill as you explore the underground bunkers where plans were laid to repel an invasion of Britain in WW2. From a walking tour of the local area to access to the war rooms themselves, keep calm and carry on with an expert guide to lead the way.

On September 7th, 1940, Nazi Germany sparked a lightning war on London, dropping bombs across the city and beginning 57 consecutive nights of terror on Britain’s capital. But how did we get there and what was to happen next?

On a private walking tour with a local expert guide, discover the grandeur of the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the Cenotaph, Ministry of Defence, 10 Downing Street, and Whitehall through the lens of WW2 - learn about the famous British resolve and the reality of life for millions at that time.

As your private guided experience continues, descend below the streets of Whitehall to discover the military bunkers of the Churchill War Rooms, frozen in time and ready to be explored once again.

Why take this tour?

Roam the top-secret corridors with your private guide. Absorb the atmosphere of a Cabinet War Room where the decisions made could lead to victory… or disaster. Chart the course of the war in a Map Room, untouched since 1945. 

And learn more about the man who led a nation through its darkest hour in a museum brimming with artifacts from Winston Churchill’s life- from his baby rattle to the cigar and bowler hat he was never seen without. 

Discover the reality of life in the bunkers for the men and women who slept, ate, and worked here as the bombs rained down overhead. 

Delve deeper into the history of Britain at war with Urban Saunters ‘Churchill War Rooms and Westminster in WW2’ - a private guided experience.

We ended up being a very small tour. This covered Westminister, Parliament & London in WW2. It was an excellent tour & we all wished we'd done it the 1st day of our trip. Great background of London through history, fun guide, ended at Churchill War Room, which was DEFINITELY worth the ticket (not included in the tour.) Highly recommend this tour!
