Located just below King Charles Street, the Cabinet War Rooms served as the secret underground headquarters for Prime Minister Winston Churchill and his advisors during World War II. The carefully preserved facility, which still contains original furnishings, is also home to the Churchill Museum, the first of its kind. Opened on the 40th anniversary of Churchill’s death, the museum tells the story of his entire life, both political and personal. In addition to artifacts such as his pajamas and famous bowker hat, the museum features a state-of-the-art Lifeline exhibit, an interactive table with information from every year of Churchill’s life.
