Description of the Experience

Wartime Headquarters/a City Destroyed
From 1939 to 1945 Britain fought for its very survival against the might of the German war machine. Enraged by the air superiority of the Royal Air Force at the Battle of Britain and Britain’s stubborn refusal to surrender, Hitler vowed to destroy London and the spirit of its people ahead of a planned invasion. Britain was to be bombed into submission, and over the course of 76 consecutive nights between September and November 1940 a third of the city was destroyed, while tens of thousands lost their lives.
See visible signs of bomb damage from the war and visit the remains of at least one church that was destroyed during the blitz and left as a testament to the devastation. See the wartime headquarters from where the Allied leaders coordinated the resistance, including Eisenhower’s Supreme Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF), General Sikorski’s London base, and many more.Important Historical Sites
See the building where ‘Operation Overlord’ wad planned, including the Allied landings on D-Day – the largest air, naval and land operation in history. You’ll also see where Sir Winston Churchill delivered his victorious VE Day speech and the sites where, almost 6 years earlier, Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain broadcasted the British declaration of war.
Monuments & StatuesPass through Parliament Square en-route to Whitehall, where along the way you’ll see the statues dedicated to notable Allied figures including Churchill, Eisenhower, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Sir Arthur “Bomber” Harris, as well as several monuments dedicated the Battle of Britain, Women of WWII and the Cenotaph- the site of Britain’s national war memorial.
