Go late at the Churchill War Rooms

Given the nights that Churchill and his inner circle spent in their wartime bunker beneath the Treasury, directing the country's efforts during the Second World War, it seems a fitting spot to visit after dark, which is a happy coincidence because this evening it is holding a special late opening with a chance to visit in the evenings.

Visitors - who must book in advance - are told to expect film screenings and the chance to practice spy skills and for a chance to win a  prize. Fittingly enough - given Churchill's fondness for booze - there is also a pop-up bar.

  1. The War Rooms are well worth visiting, whatever the person's views about Churchill himself. The spaces were important, the era was world changing and the film provides a good context for people whose historical knowledge is a bit shaky.
