We purchased a Fast Track ticket prior to our trip and it helped a lot as the line was long. These rooms became operational after 10 Downing Street was damaged by bombing. Upon entering you are given an audio cassette so you can move through...More

Wonderful stop on our London trip. A real eye-opener on how Churchvill lived during the war as primeminister.

This is where Churchill directed WW2 from his underground bunker. It is very interesting to see and hear the audio stories of the people worked there. It also has a nice display of Churchill's life. We had a good time.

It was amazing to see the war museum. The one thing i really loved was the letters that Sir Winston Churchill send to his wife.

Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
