Starting outside Westminster tube station, this guided tour will begin with a walk past some of London’s most famous landmarks including Downing Street, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and the Cenotaph.

Along the way your guide will stop at the statue of Sir Winston Churchill and the monument to the Women of World War II, and talk about the foreign governments and Heads of State that were forced into exile in London as Germany overran Europe.

Then you'll walk towards St. James's Park and enter the Churchill War Rooms -- the underground bunker that sheltered Churchill and his wartime government during the Blitz.

You'll have time to explore then warren of underground tunnels at your own pace and listen to the history on the audioguide, experiencing what life was like for the secret staff who deciphered the enemy communications, plotted the frontlines on the maps, and took important calls from the army, air force and navy.

Many of the most important rooms have been left completely untouched, and preserved exactly as they were on the day the lights were switched off in 1945.

You'll also be able to explore the Churchill Museum and see the great man's bowler hat, cigars and watercolour paintings, and listen to his famous wartime speeches.
