Tour description ​
It’s time to go back to the 1940s. Big Ben no longer sounds. Air raid sirens are the norm. German bombing raids come under cover of darkness. The population lives with rations and restrictions. Many Brits lay down their lives in Europe and beyond. With your local expert guide, you will keep calm and carry on, learning about the British resolve and getting the inside scoop on the truth behind Westminster in wartime on this walking tour past our most important monuments- Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the Cenotaph, Ministry of War, 10 Downing Street and Whitehall with the option to purchase your own tickets to Churchill’s War Rooms, the strategic war room bunkers from where Winston Churchill and cabinet were to conduct their part of WW2- frozen in time and ready to be discovered once again.
