Clip: London’s Whitehall and the Churchill War Rooms

Whitehall is Britain's most important street, connecting Parliament with Trafalgar Square. A walk here is chock-full of reminders of a proud and hard-fought history as you pass monuments and the colorful Royal Horse Guards. On a Rick Steves Best of London tour you'll take this historic walk and tour the nearby Churchill War Rooms. Shut down after World War II, the War Rooms now provide a fascinating time warp between London's prosperous present and the perils it faced only 70 years ago. This video clip gives you a 2½-minute preview.
