Wonderful tour. Guide was well informed and interjected humor where appropriate. The churchill

Wonderful tour. The guide was well informed. The group was just the right size so that everyone had ample opportunity to ask questions. The Churchill War Rooms were awe inspiring. Could really picture the activities going on in those desperate times. Recommending to friends as a must experience activity.

Our guide made the modern area of London go back in time with his stories. His energy and knowledge made for a fun walking tour. And then the Churchill War rooms are an amazing step back to WWII

We loved our walking tour in preparation for the Churchill War Rooms. He was so full of knowledge and was able to give us so much interesting information before going to the War Rooms. He was funny and very helpful. We loved this tour!

My husband and I really enjoy WWII history. This was a fantastic tour in and around Westminster and Parliament square. The tour was easy to locate and the guide, Richard, was extremely knowledgeable and engaging (we actually had him for two tours!). The War Rooms are an experience all on there own and the benefit of doing the walking tour and admission is you’ll escape what is likely a lengthy queue no matter the time of day. Highly recommended for anyone interested in WWII history, Winston Churchill and even the basis of a lot of history surrounding parliament’s beginnings.
