Plan a Christmas Party That Goes Down in History at Churchill War Rooms

Want your Christmas party to go down in history? Then there can’t be a better venue than Churchill War Rooms – the very site where Prime Minister Winston Churchill and his cabinet made history by leading Britain through WW2!

Unique, atmospheric and amazingly located, it really is the perfect spot for hosting a Christmas party that your guests won’t forget in a hurry. Here’s why we love it so much.

Steeped in history

In the UK, few places are more historically significant than the secret underground headquarters where Winston Churchill lived and worked during the Second World War.

Every corridor and corner of this one-of-a-kind venue is bursting with stories to tell. So, you can be sure that there’ll be plenty to talk about – not just during your event itself, but long after too. After all, how many people can claim to have sipped champagne in the very spot where Churchill led Britain to victory?!


Wonderfully unique

The venue’s striking Harmsworth Room has all the atmosphere you’d expect from a wartime bunker, teamed with all the comforts you could want from a modern venue.

An original generator wall from the 1940s forms a unique backdrop of LEDs, switches and dials, making this a stunning space for your event. Ultimately, hosting a Christmas party here will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for your guests, whether you’re planning a festive drinks reception or a three-course Christmas dinner.


A dream location

Churchill War Rooms is located right in the heart of Westminster, making it ideally situated for guests travelling from near and far. But there’s a twist!

Keeping these headquarters secret during WW2 was key to their survival. So, this quirky venue is actually hidden away underneath the streets of Westminster, and beneath some of the area’s most iconic buildings. The location definitely ticks our boxes in terms of both convenience and originality!

Mouth-watering food

As if we haven’t given you enough reasons to host your Christmas party here, there’s more! They say the way to your guests’ hearts is through their stomachs, and Churchill War Rooms won’t disappoint.

When you host a Christmas party here, you’ll be able to choose from a range of delicious options, whether you’re after canapes and bowl food, or five-course dining. Oh, and that’s not to mention the wide range of drinks on offer, from wine and champagne to beers, spirits and soft drinks. The sky’s the limit!

Food at Churchill War Rooms


The flexibility isn’t just limited to the food either! The Harmsworth Room at Churchill War Rooms is an adaptable space that can be tailored to your needs.

After a standing reception with drinks and canapes? No problem – the space has room for 120. Want to treat your team to a seated dinner? Easy – this is the perfect venue for a dinner dance, with space for 90.


Now you can see why Churchill War Rooms simply had to be our Unique Venue of the Month. Seriously, what’s not to like about this remarkable venue?!
