Full description
While much has changed in the intervening years, there are still reminders of these dark days. Join this special private tour which will take you to places that big group and bus tours could never hope to go.

Rather than visit the big name sites that everyone knows, this tour will take you to some of the monuments that will remind you of the heroics of the defenders and civilians of London as well as to see some of the rare ruins that remain right in the middle of London. You will also visit the outside of a deep earth bunker that saw much of the planning for D-Day made within its lair and the more modest entrance to a public air raid shelter in Westminster.

If the Blitz had led to the planned invasion of Britain, there was a series of defenses ready to meet the might of the Third Reich and you will see one of the last remaining pillboxes as well as visit the location and memorial of one of the worst disasters of the Blitz at Bethnal Green. Finally, finish the tour at the only remaining and fully restored Ack Ack or anti-aircraft gun in London and possibly the U.K.
