  • It’s dark and the corridors are narrow so stay together. The Churchill Museum section is particularly dark.
  • There isn’t a family audio guide, and the adult one is quite dry, so kids may prefer to just look at the room sets.
  • It does get very busy here during the summer months.
  • Sadly, there’s a lack of staff inside the attraction so it’s hard to ask questions about the exhibits.
  • Do go to St James’s Park afterwards for fresh air.
