Churchill War Rooms
(formerly Churchill Museum & Cabinet War Rooms)

Churchill Museum - Cabinet War Rooms in London

Churchill War Rooms
The Churchill Museum & Cabinet War Rooms changed its name in 2010 to the Churchill War Rooms — to commemmorate the 70th Anniversary of Winston Churchill becoming Prime Minister in May 1940.

The Churchill Museum — a permanent exhibition housed within the historic Cabinet War Rooms — is the world’s first major museum dedicated to life of Winston Churchill.

These top-secret bomb-proof underground Cabinet War Rooms protected Prime Minister Winston Churchill, his War Cabinet, and Chief Military Advisors against air attacks during World War II.



Today, visitors can see the Cabinet War Rooms, just as they looked back then — featuring original furnishings and equipment. This is a fascinating tour, especially if you're a history buff.

Churchill's Room
This is the room where Winston Churchill spent the night when it was too dangerous for him to return to his official residence at No. 10 Downing Street.

The Transatlantic
Telephone Room

This tiny room housed the secret Hot-Line Telephone, allowing Churchill and the U.S. President to conduct their strategic discussions in complete security.

The Cabinet Room
Churchill, his Chiefs of Staff, and a select few War Cabinet ministers and advisers met in this private chamber during the evening bombing raids of 1940 and 1941.

The Map Room
The Map Room became the hub of the whole site until V-J Day —the day that victory over Japan was celebrated by the Allies. Closed down one day after the war — August 16, 1945 — the room was left almost exactly as you see it today.
