Our WW2 London Tour contains two major components. First, you will embark on a Churchill War Rooms tour. From central Westminster, your Blue Badge Guide takes you underground into the bunker that was home to the headquarters of the British War Department. There you can explore the very site where much of the Allied war effort was managed.

Churchill War Rooms Private Tour

Many of the Churchill War Rooms have been left unchanged. This offers us a real insight into working conditions and allowing you to imagine what it would be like in those times.

You would be forgiven for thinking this would be a hard place to work. The office had no air conditioning or plumbing, and it played temporary home to many people.

However, your guide will share stories about how privileged many of the workers here felt. They were proud of the essential contribution they were making to the war effort.

Your guide can explain how Allied communications were encoded with SIGSALY to hide their contents from Axis powers. You’ll hear about revolutionary advances in cryptography and their effect on the war.

Learn About Churchill Himself

For those of you interested in Winston Churchill, part of this Churchill War Rooms tour includes visiting the museum dedicated to this great man. Let us share with you some of his uniforms, daily schedules, and both formal and informal letters.

The exhibits tell the story of the charismatic Winston Churchill. He was a prime minister and wartime leader, but also a beloved family man.

Did you know that Churchill was also a writer and artist? His studio at home was a favourite retreat during quieter periods.

Perhaps you’d like to see the wanted note offering a £25 reward for turning in a young Churchill, following his escape from prison during the Boer War!

Reaching the halfway point of our London WWII tour, you can enjoy some refreshments and visit the gift shop for a souvenir.

Part Two: World War 2 Walking Tour in London

After finishing our private tour of the Churchill War Rooms, we embark on a journey around Whitehall and Parliament Square to begin Part 2: a World War II walking tour of London.

This area is packed with various memorials and monuments. Some are very obvious, others are hidden in and around ministerial buildings. Your guide will help you find them and share their stories.

Every year, Whitehall plays host to a grand military parade commemorating both World Wars. We will see the poppy wreaths and banners laid on the Cenotaph, the empty tomb.

Walking through the Embankment area, we will visit many memorials dedicated to specific military groups that were involved in the conflict.

Who were the Chindits? Learn about this revolutionary group of men who operated deep behind Japanese lines in Burma. Their commemorative plaque may be small in comparison to some monuments, but your guide will explain the significant impact these men had on the war and also on future styles of military operations.

Where do you find the Battle of Britain memorial? We will show you this beautiful piece and tell you about the pivotal effect the Battle of Britain had on the path of the war.

So ends your World War II walking tour. Your guide will be happy to tell you about more museums you can visit in London or help with suggestions for the rest of your stay.

Winston Churchill was a very influential part of London’s history. But you can learn about other influential people in London, like the Royal Family. See the Crown Jewels on our Tower of London Tour or visit the church where there have been many royal weddings on our Westminster Abbey Tour.

The highlight of our UK trip This was an unforgettable experience for the whole family, including our 8 year old daughter. Our tour guide Lucy was excellent, and it really helped to have an expert explain each of the areas we explored. There is so much we would have missed without her. She really brought the place to life with her storytelling and expertise. Did I mention how well the kids liked her too! If you are going to splurge on one thing in London, this is it.

Highly recommend. Great for both adults and children Fantastic tour with Denisa. We had 3 adults and our 7 year old grandson, and she did a great job of engaging and educating all of us. She customized the tour for our interests/ages, and we visited the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast.We couldn't have been more happy with our experience

DO IT Wow wow wow. This was a great tour. Everything was perfect. I don't often take tours - usually want to explore on my own. This was a short trip and we wanted to pack as much in as possible so we decided to book a tour. I've now become a fan of tours. Marina waited for us at the meeting point ahead of schedule. She was pleasant and extremely knowledgeable, even in answering our questions that were not directly related to the tour. She was prepared and kept us all engaged - adults and teens. It was clear she was prepared to engage any age. I was worried that I'd feel "trapped" in a long tour but it was the exact opposite - the day went by so easily and comfortably and I can't believe how much we saw and learned. I could not recommend the tour any more strongly.

Terrific Tower of London tour My family loved this private tour! We learned so much from our guide and loved being her sole focus. My girls could ask lots of questions and feel comfortable doing so!

Best Way to Tour the Tower Where to begin? These ladies run a top-notch operation. Their service levels are unparalled. Their knowledge base is incredible, which is only matched by their excellent communication before the tour, and follow up after with little tidbits of information. Book with them, and you will not be disappointed.
