I really enjoyed viewing the actual War Rooms, the displays depicting day to day life there are great. The museum is massive, a little overwhelming. Some of the interactive displays are difficult to operate, but generally everything you could want to know about this time...More

This is where Churchill directed WW2 from his underground bunker. It is very interesting to see and hear the audio stories of the people worked there. It also has a nice display of Churchill's life. We had a good time.

Very interesting and informative. Learned more than I already knew, how we nearly failed and Churchill brought us back (unpopular as he was)!

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
