During the devastating attack on London during World War 2, one man carried a nation’s weight of expectation on his shoulders. As London was mercilessly bombed by the Nazis, Winston Churchill plotted our victory from the streets of London and operations room in Westminster.
Hear about London during the Blitz, the courage of ordinary people in the face of terror, and see the city through the eyes of our iconic Prime Minister.
Standing in the locations hit by the Luftwaffe 75 years ago, we’ll use old photos and incredible stories to invoke the famous Blitz Spirit and transport you back in time to our Darkest Hour…
On our journey into the heart of Westminster, we’ll take in the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Parliament Square, Downing Street and Whitehall, see war memorials, a bomb escape hatch, Churchill’s statue and so much more…
We’ll finish the walk outside the Churchill War Rooms after 1.5 hours. We encourage you to book your ticket directly from the War Rooms to ensure you can walk straight in when we finish. Tickets from the Churchill War Rooms are £27.50 for adults, with cheaper options for concessions, and can book up early, so buy them as far in advance as you can: https://www.iwm.org.uk/visits/churchill-war-rooms
