What to expect

Roll back the clock as you discover wartime London with the help of an expert guide. Stroll around the capital and hear all about the significance of the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and more before entering the Churchill War Museum.

Kick off your tour on the streets of Westminster with your expert guide at your side to give you an insight into the history of some of London's most iconic sites like 10 Downing Street, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. Then it's onto the Cenotaph, originally constructed as a memorial to the First World War, now the national monument to all fallen British soldiers. You'll also encounter the statue of Sir Winston Churchill and the monument to women in World War II.

Then it's onto the Churchill War Museum where you'll enjoy a guided tour of the war rooms that have been left untouched since 1945. These are the original wartime bunkers that offered shelter to Prime Minister Winston Churchill and his government during World War II. You'll step into an underground complex of rooms that once quivered with heavy shelling as well as around-the-clock strategies and secrets that cracked the enemy's communications and mapped the army's movements. Your guide will leave you at the Churchill Museum as you continue your visit, listening in on the top-secret conversations between Churchill and President Roosevelt in the Transatlantic Telephone Room.
