Full description

On a private or shared group walking tour with an 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 WWII. Learn about the British resolve and the reality of life for millions at that time.

Start your tour outside the Monument to the RAF, which commemorates the individuals who took part in the Battle of Britain during the Second World War. Meet your guide who will begin to tell you the history of the area, and about life during WWII.

Together, travel through London visiting iconic landmarks, such as Big Ben, and Westminster Abbey, as your guide tells you the impact of WWII and how Britain coped with the war.

Finish your tour outside the Churchill’s War Rooms. Your guide will leave you here to explore if desired. Explore strategic bunkers from where Winston Churchill and cabinet were to conduct their part of WWII, frozen in time and ready to be discovered once again.
