Please don’t be put off by the somewhat gloomy title as this is a family fun tour of London seeing all the sights but also hearing the stories and seeing how London and the country coped during the War years.
The bombing raids at the start of 1940 were intended to crush the fight out of Britain, instead it inspired a new spirit in the population, the spirit of the BLITZ. We will drive through London and see the sites and remains of war torn London. See where the first bomb fell, view tunnels that became shelters for the masses, see where the secret underground government tunnels were located. You will hear stories of courage and endeavour. Follow Winston Churchill’s footsteps around London and learn how he became the powerful leader of the country. See where Eisenhower stayed whilst in England and view notable war memorials to men, women, children and animals.
Why not turn the tour into an all day adventure for the family.
