Dive into Westminster's underground to uncover the secrets of one of history's greatest victories

Explore the subterranean world where Churchill's government plotted the defeat of Hitler's regime in World War II. The Cabinet War Rooms, located in the heart of Westminster, were operational just days before the declaration of war on Germany. Discover the secret corridors that kept the senior government members safe during WWII, where Churchill and his War Cabinet met, and step back in time in the perfectly-preserved Map Room. And don't forget to check out the Transatlantic Telephone Room, cleverly disguised as a tiny private toilet - who knew such important conversations could take place in such a tiny space?
