The discussion will focus on Prime Minister Winston Churchill, including his crucial role in the fight against the Axis Powers and his ability to cement the 'Big Three' Alliance with Russia and the United States. We’ll take in the famous Map Room, the techniques used to communicate with the outside world, and examine how the Cabinet War Rooms remained operational for six years.

What is a small group tour?
The London Pass does include access to the War Rooms, but not skip-the-line, which is essential in order to take full advantage of the three hours. Because of this, pre-purchased tickets are required.
We generally spend about one hour in the War Rooms. If you are interested in a more in-depth, exclusive visit, we can arrange private visits before and after hours to the Churchill War Rooms. Contact us for more information.
Born and raised a Londoner, Mark has been fortunate to live also in Oxford and Dorset, as well as to work overseas in France, United States of America, Czech Republic and Russia. He has enjoyed visiting or living in several great cities but nothing compares with London - quite simply, this is the world's most fascinating city! His personal interests range from the history of the City, to Jewish history, transport and multicultural London.
Since leaving university in 1982, Sean has lived and worked across the globe in a nearly 30-year career as a senior executive in financial services. He put his skills and knowledge to work in the Charity Sector in the UK for 7 years but decided life was too short to not focus entirely on his passions for people, history, art and architecture. When not guiding, Sean is restoring a Georgian House and serving as a Parish Councillor. He is a freeman of the City of London and a freeman of the City Livery company of Clockmakers. He lives in London and Wiltshire.
Imogen Rumbold is a retired solicitor living in London. She is the mother of 3 children, now grown up, but not so long ago that she cannot remember what it is like to be in children’s company! Originally called to the Bar in 1979, she then swapped sides to become a solicitor and partner in the law firm of Lawrence Graham (now Gowlings WLG), and thereafter as a partner in the niche City shipping practice of Lax & Co. Practising as a shipping litigator led to quite a lot of travel, to such places as Russia, Bulgaria and land-locked Switzerland. In 2018, Imogen retired to devote herself to guiding, thus indulging her interests in history without quite abandoning the law. She is a fully qualified tourist guide and holds the coveted Blue Badge, which permits her to lead tours in London, the Cotswolds, Bath and Stonehenge, amongst other sites. She loves sharing London with visitors, the capital city where she has lived and worked for over 40 years. She gets just as much pleasure from guiding children as she does from guiding grown-ups. Come and visit!
