Great day at the #ChurchillWarRooms. Fascinating #museum and a look at fighting a war under the capital. Highlights  include a letter from #GeorgeVI to #Churchill on why the two of them probably shouldn’t storm the beaches of Normandy on #DDay. #WWII #ImperialWarMuseum #WinstonChurchill #DarkestHour #worldwar2
#tbt to the time we went to the War Rooms in London.
Winston Churchill was a wise man 👌🏽😂

In #DarkestHour, Lily James plays Elizabeth Layton, a private secretary to Winston Churchill. She says walking into #ChurchillWarRooms is "just incredible...it's left exactly as it was." Book your visit to the secret underground bunker where Churchill and his inner circle plotted the route to Allied victory.

Clementine Churchill was a woman of powerful intellect, offering advice and support to her husband as he faced the challenges of being Britain’s wartime leader. In one letter, she warned him about his ‘rough, sarcastic and overbearing manner’ towards his colleagues. Although she sometimes disagreed with him and remained a Liberal all her life, 'Clemmie' was always loyal to her husband in public. Explore the life and legacy of Winston Churchill in the Churchill Museum at #ChurchillWarRooms.

Learned today that Churchill’s bunker was only bomb-resistant but not bomb-proof... 😯

Darkest Hour(黑暗對峙)是元旦檔期的沉重史實電影,講述二戰初對於整個歐洲、英國及電影主角英國首相Winston Churchill(邱吉爾)最黑暗的時刻。

男主角Gary Oldman的邱吉爾造型出神入化,近鏡看也是一個老翁。只可惜Gary Oldman本身臉長,加上鬆弛下垂及肥胖的化妝填充物,令整張臉更長,與邱吉爾臉圓的真身不太相似。但Gary Oldman的演技救回一切,語氣動靜也十分像真。

應記一功的是導演串連邱吉爾幾次演說,以對白為主調的故事變得吸引緊湊,著實不易。如果大家看完上年的Dunkirk(鄧寇克大行動),Darkest Hour提到邱吉爾如何促成拯救滯留Dunkirk英兵的大行動;看過兩片的感覺會更完整。

p.s.: 好後悔上次去倫敦去唔切Churchill War Rooms

Watching ‘Darkest Hour’ (which is great FYI) has made me all nostalgic for my time working with the exhibitions team at the Cabinet War Rooms - here I am in the Prime Ministers room, with Churchill’s Great Great Grandkiddies - definitely a Widdicombe bucket list moment 🗺 #darkesthour #fangirl #winstonchurchill #churchillwarrooms

Churchill War Rooms is recreated in #DarkestHour. In the film, @lilyjamesofficial plays Elizabeth Layton, a private secretary to Winston Churchill. She says the atmosphere of the real Churchill War Rooms brings to life the stories of the people who worked there during the Second World War, and explains the 'responsibility' she felt in portraying Elizabeth. 
Visit #ChurchillWarRooms to learn more about what it was like to work in the secret underground bunker.

You’ve probably heard the hype about Gary Oldman’s Golden Globes win and BAFTA nomination for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour - but did you know that Churchill’s secret underground bunker, which features heavily in the film, is still in existence and open to visit daily in Westminster?

My number one recommendation for any history buff visiting London: check out the #ChurchillWarRooms. An excellently preserved piece of World War II history that got me all the more excited to see #DarkestHour, to watch the big personality who filled these small rooms as he conducted war operations and refused to back down in the face of tyranny.

Being in the presence of artifacts and spaces where such crucial and fascinating historical moments played out was incredible. I got chills seeing the BBC transmission equipment, just down the hall (narrow corridor, really) from the room where Churchill gave four of his wartime speeches. And I got more goosebumps in the museum there looking upon the very door of 10 Downing Street (pictured here) that Churchill walked through on his first day (and many more) as Prime Minister. 
Kudos to @chriswellerphoto, who raved about the War Rooms upon his return from England last year. Thanks for telling me about it and sharing your enthusiasm for Winston!

I was fortunate to get to write for Mental Floss about the "Darkest Hour" filmmakers' process of recreating the Cabinet War Rooms for their Ealing Studios set. Link to the article (featuring an interview with production designer Sarah Greenwood) is currently in my bio.

#ChurchillWarRooms was recreated at a film studio in London for #DarkestHour and members of the cast and crew visited the real War Rooms to help them prepare for filming.

Gary Oldman, who plays Churchill, says a visit to the war rooms is like “time travel” and recommends it as one of the “great” exhibits London has to offer.

"Every time anyone says, ‘I’m going to London’, I say, ‘You have to go and see this’, because it's one of my favourite exhibits." Kristin Scott Thomas has been nominated for a BAFTA for her performance as Clementine Churchill in the new film Darkest Hour, which hits UK cinemas tomorrow. The recreated rooms which feature in #DarkestHour were the result of months of research by the filmmakers in the real Churchill War Rooms. Kristin Scott Thomas was amazed at the extraordinary level of detail that went into creating the replica of #ChurchillWarRooms, one of her top places to visit in London.

Plan your visit to explore the historic events and location that inspired Darkest Hour.

Feeling like a very lucky history grad after being allowed behind the glass to explore the #ChurchillWarRooms today 🧐 Including a sighting of some sugar cubes that date back to the 1940s!

Congratulations to #DarkestHour for a phenomenal nine #EEBAFTAs nominations, including Best Film, Outstanding British Film, Lead Actor - Gary Oldman, and Supporting Actress - Kristin Scott Thomas.

The cast and crew including Gary Oldman and Director Joe Wright visited Churchill War Rooms as part of their research for the film. Wright found the atmosphere of the real War Rooms 'metaphoric' of Churchill's early days as Prime Minister, as it fell to the wartime leader to guide Britain through its darkest hour.

Visit #ChurchillWarRooms and explore the historic location from which Churchill and his inner circle plotted the route to Allied victory.

My trip through British history continued down in the #ChurchillWarRooms with a comprehensive look at England in WWII and some confusion on who was a wax figure or not, a visit to Lilibet & Philip and a quick stop at #CanadaHouse in #TrafalgarSquare. Also let’s all be aware of the fact that Clementine Churchill coined the term “romper” for that velvet jumpsuit of Winston’s... 💁🏻‍♀️🇬🇧🇨🇦

Now reading: Richard Holmes - Churchill’s Bunker: The Secret Headquarters at the Heart of Britain’s Victory. Visited the Churchill War Rooms in London last week (great museum; see the following pictures in this post!) and picked up this book.
