Fodor's Review

Winston Churchill said that the threat of a U-Boat attack from the Atlantic was his greatest fear during World War II. At this evocative war museum you can explore the warren of rooms under the city streets that served the top-secret "Western Approaches Command HQ" from 1941 to 1945. The lofty Operations Room, full of the state-of-the-art technology of the time, is especially interesting.
