Churchill War Rooms
The Churchill War Rooms take you back to a time when the world was at war. During this time Prime Minister Winston Churchill and his War Cabinet met in these rooms, where he declared: 'This is the room from which I will direct the war'.

Find out what it was like in the bunker, hear stories from the people that were there. Hear from Churchill's private secretary or hear the story of an RAF officer who was in the Map Room on the day the war was declared.
