Our guide Stephen provided an interesting story at every point during the tour. He was an encyclopedia of fun facts and trivia about Churchill, WW2, Royalty and London history. We learned so much during our time together we were reluctant for the walking tour to end. However, the Churchill War Rooms did not disappoint ! The audio tour (available with the ticket) provides insights into a critical part of world history.

A war buff historian must see. The war rooms give you an up close idea of what it was like to run the war from underground London. A bit claustrophobic, but efficiently set up to run Britains war machine. Fascinating as compared to today.

Stephen was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. He allowed us to move at our own pace and was very receptive to questions. We would not have gain as much knowledge about London if we walk the city on our own. We highly recommend Stephan and encourage our friends coming to London in the coming months to book this tour and Stephen.
