Neat historic spot right in the middle of downtown London. The bunker has been nicely upkept to preserve the history. The audio guides for the tour do not require headphones. I do recommend the audio tour, as it nicely complements the walk through. You can move at your own pace. We took a teenager and he enjoyed the history of WWII. We also caught a neat parade as we were leaving.GOOGLE REVIEW

Excellent museum exhibits. Removing two stars for the high price (29 pounds a person) and very rude treatment by the staff. We had been enjoying the Winston Churchill exhibits with many other people when staff showed up and rudely shooed us out of the room and told us we had only 30 minutes and had to pick up the pace. 30 minutes turned out to not even be enough time to listen to the audio guide for the remaining museum exhibits. In my experience museums typically budget some time after official closing for people in the middle of the museum to complete it. Not so here, we were constantly hounded to keep moving and followed closely through the one way tunnels. At very least the staff could have been polite to us instead of treating us as an inconvenience. Especially when the standard and already expensive admission includes a 10% donation by default. At the end of the museum is a gift shop as is typical. We were told that we had 2 minutes to get to the register or they would refuse to sell us anything after 6pm. This caused everyone to rush and created unnecessary chaos. On top of all that it wasn't even true the cashiers were extremely polite and accommodating and were taking purchases well after 6 I understand that staff want to go home but I expect better treatment especially for the price. Perhaps an earlier notice or at very least an apology for interjecting would have been appropriateGOOGLE REVIEW

We enjoyed our visit, audio guide was informative and the whole place very evocative. Was using my stick that day and staff were great offering me headphones for the audio guide so I didn't have both hands in use and a seat if I needed it. Part of the museum was being redone but it didn't detract from our experience. Some of the mannequins could do with updating, but other than that well worth a visit.GOOGLE REVIEW

Watch the 2017 movie “The Darkest Hour”, then come to the Churchill War Rooms. Of course, if you’re interested in WWII history you may be well versed in the significance of these rooms. Some of the rooms are preserved exactly the way they were on the day WWII ended. And they throw in the audio device and tour as part of the entrance price. Very well done. Great pathway through the rooms. Some of Churchill’s speeches during the war can be listened to in the Churchill part of the tour.GOOGLE REVIEW

Good experience, the guides had small scoops of information to tell you which was very interesting. Though I was underground I never felts cramped in and the Audio guides where a really useful, fun addition. Worth the money if this is your thing. Cafe was not over priced which is also good.GOOGLE REVIEW
