Cabinet War Rooms and Churchill Museum

The Cabinet War Rooms were the main headquarters for the British government during the Second World War, at the time hidden in a secret underground location. Fearful of an aerial attack, the basement of a Whitehall building was chosen for its construction in 1938, before becoming operational the following year due to the outbreak of World War II.

The doors to the War Rooms were locked after Japanese Forces surrendered in August 1945 and in the 1970s the Imperial War Museum were tasked with preserving the site, before the main war rooms were opened to the general public in 1984. Bring yourself into the heart of history, to the location that helped to save Europe and fortified democracy and everything we stand for.
