London Travel Guide: The Churchill War Rooms

Should you go to Europe, I’d recommend having at least one backup activity planned just in case there is a protest, strike, or other variance that may ruin original plans. We happened to have one day our plans were changed, but it actually turned out to be a pretty cool thing- brace yourself for a pretty shockingly awesome thing we experienced which will be the next London post!

Touring the Churchill War Rooms

I’m actually thrilled that we were able to go see the Churchill War Rooms, such an amazing part of history that gives so much more appreciation for the sacrifices made during times of war.

What You’ll See At the Churchill War Rooms

We were able to see the bunkers that Churchill, his family, and many war leaders occupied throughout WWII. It’s a pretty humbling experience to see what tight quarters they lived in which were kept completely secret, and many never saw the light of day for months at a time.

The relationship with Roosevelt and Churchill was quite touching- we listened to many of their recorded calls, some in truly tough moments of the war. And seeing the honors awarded to each other post war were pretty amazing as well!

We also loved touring the strategy rooms, pretty amazing stuff. They haven’t been touched since WWII, so they were preserved in pure accuracy.

 Seeing the casualties tracked was a sobering site. As U.S. residents I think we often reflect so much on our own death toll that we don’t stop to think of how many lost their lives elsewhere- and how much of this happened in their own soil!

 The gift shop was also really entertaining!
Did I mention I’m fascinated with propaganda? It may be that marketing profession of mine, but war propaganda is so interesting! We spent a decent amount of time going through posters and postcards reading the many different messages used by various countries.
