UK Schools, FE Colleges and Youth Groups

All UK schools, FE colleges and youth groups must book their visit to Churchill War Rooms in advance and pay on arrival.

Explore how a museum uses its displays to interpret history and encourage students to be reflective and critical thinkers. Sessions are delivered in the dedicated facilities provided in the Clore Learning Centre and around the site.

Discover the historic site on a self guided visit or for a charge add a learning session during term time to support programmes of study in History, Literacy, Numeracy, Art and Citizenship for Years 5 and above.
