Description

On September 7th 1940, Nazi Germany sparked lightening 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 Defence, 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.

 

And 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 down overhead. Delve deeper into the history of Britain at war with an Urban Saunters ‘Churchill War Rooms and Westminster in WW2’ - private guided experience.

We loved it. The tour guide, Francis, was very nice and got us to the right places at the right time. He talked about the history of the monarchy and some stories about the experiences he’s had with the royal family. The change of the guards was really cool and interesting to see. The overal experience was great. :)

In mid December my family and I went on a changing of the guard tour with Francis. He was an amazing guide with exceptional knowledge and ensured we got the best view of everything. The tour was enjoyable and we’re all so glad we went!
