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 lunch menu at the contemporary British restaurant at the 5-star hotel, The Athenaeum.. Considered by restaurant critics to be the best British restaurant of its generation, it's the perfect location to enjoy classical cooking with a contemporary flourish.

Since opening in 1996, the restaurant’s ethos, has remained the same: source the best seasonal products and let them shine. This method is as true for the food as it is the award-winning wine list, which features over 1500 bins.
