Description

Walk in Winston Churchill's footsteps and discover what life would have been like for Churchill and his inner circle during the Second World War as they planned the route to Allied victory. Unlock the secrets behind Churchill's success by exploring the Map Room, which has remained exactly as it was left the day the lights were switched off in 1945; hear extracts from Churchill's rousing wartime speeches such as "blood, toil, tears and sweat" and "we shall fight them on the beaches"; stand alongside the original No. 10 door that Churchill walked through after becoming Prime Minister; and view fascinating, cutting-edge multimedia displays of devoted letters he wrote to his wife, to photo and film clips of his early life. With admissions tickets for two, spend all afternoon delving into this extraordinary branch of the Imperial War Museum.

After a day exploring the top-secret bunker, journey a short distance to Mayfair to savour a three-course bespoke lunch menu at Michelin-starred restaurant, Alyn Williams at The Westbury. Situated in London's exclusive Mayfair neighbourhood, the Westbury Hotel is a modern 5-star landmark. The restaurant within features a stylish and elegant dining room in the centre of the hotel, branded by John Lancaster at The Guardian as "a temple of gastronomy". The food is impressive "first-class cooking", and the menu reflects a London influence on traditional European cuisine.
