Full description

Join a guided private historical walking tour around London with your live guide, a fellow historian lover. Enjoy a day exploring all the iconic sites such as the Houses of Parliament and Whitehall to discover the military bunkers of the Churchill War Rooms.

Learn all about World War II, when on September 7th, 1940, Nazi Germany sparked a lightning war on London, dropping bombs across the city and beginning 57 consecutive nights of terror on Britain’s capital. But how did we get there, and what was to happen next? On a private walking tour with a local expert guide, discover the grandeur of the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the Cenotaph, Ministry of War, 10 Downing Street, and Whitehall through the lens of WW2 - learn about the famous British resolve and the reality of life for millions at that time. As your private guided experience continues, descend below the streets of Whitehall to discover the military bunkers of the Churchill War Rooms, frozen in time and ready to be explored once again. Roam the top-secret corridors with your private guide. Absorb the atmosphere of a Cabinet War Room where the decisions made could lead to victory… or disaster. Chart the course of the war in a Map Room, untouched since 1945. Learn more about the man who led a nation through their darkest hour in a museum brimming with artefacts from Winston Churchill’s life- from his baby rattle to the cigar and bowler hat he was never seen without. Discover the reality of life in the bunkers for the men and women who slept, ate and worked here as the bombs rained overhead. ‘’It is the time to dare and endure.’’ —Winston Churchill

Richard obviously loves the topic and shares so much history and government enthusiastically throughout the tour. He was patient with our group of 5, aged 15-71.
