Churchill War Rooms | Tourope

The Churchill War Rooms is a historic underground complex that housed a British government command centre throughout the Second World War. Now it’s a museum, exploring the life of British statesman Winston Churchill and uncovering the influences and pressures that shaped his life, leadership and legacy.

Here you will have the chance to discover the secrets hidden beneath the streets of Westminster in the underground nerve centre where Winston Churchill and his inner circle directed the Second World War.

The Cabinet War Rooms became fully functional on 27 August 1939, just a week before Britain declared war on Germany. The War Rooms remained in operation throughout the Second World War, before being abandoned in August 1945 after the surrender of Japan.
