Full description
In 1940, the Germans bombed London continuously for 57 days and nights. As you will learn on this tour, nothing could derail the spirit of the British, whose can-do attitude helped them not only survive the war, but to rebuild the city of London.

This extraordinary walk takes you through the events that left much of London in rubble during the second world war. With your expert guide, follow the line of destruction and hear tales of outstanding heroism. Stand outside buildings where scars are still visible, and hear how the bravery of ordinary men and women saved the iconic St Paul’s Cathedral from destruction.

Next, see the vast collection at the Imperial War Museum, including official documents, photographs and videos, military vehicles, aircrafts, and military weapons. Originally opened in 1920, after World War II the museum grew and expanded its collection. Today it has one of the best collections worldwide, offering visitors the possibility of seeing an atomic bomb, a human torpedo, tanks, and military aircraft.

Your guide will escort you on a crafted itinerary affording you the opportunity to maximize your tour time and concentrate on the most important and interesting exhibits.
