Shortly after becoming Prime Minister in May 1940, Winston Churchill visited the Cabinet War Rooms to see for himself what preparations had been made to allow him and his War Cabinet to continue working throughout the expected air raids on London. It was there, in the underground Cabinet Room, he announced ‘This is the room from which I will direct the war’.
Visit the underground complex close to Westminster. Also visit the Churchill Museum, the museum dedicated to the life of Winston Churchill.
