Event Venue

The event will be held at The Churchill War Rooms.

Discover the secrets hidden beneath the streets of Westminster in the underground nerve centre where Winston Churchill and his inner circle directed the Second World War.

History was made in the Churchill War Rooms – an underground bunker that allowed Britain’s leaders to plot the allied route to victory during the Second World War. Walk the labyrinth of rooms and corridors that stretch below Westminster that sheltered Winston Churchill and his war cabinet from the bombing raids.

As seen in the recent film The Darkest Hour and the Netflix series The Crown.
