Jump into the 16-seat minivan at the meeting point and set off on an informative tour of London’s wartime history. See visible signs of bomb damage from the war and visit the remains of a church that was destroyed during the Blitz, left as a testament to the devastation. Discover the wartime headquarters where the Allied leaders coordinated the resistance, including Eisenhower’s Supreme Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF), General Sikorski’s London base, and much more.

Visit the building where Operation Overlord was planned, including the Allied landings on D-Day, in the largest air, naval and land operation in history. You’ll also see where Winston Churchill delivered his victorious VE Day speech, and the site where Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain broadcast the British declaration of war almost 6 years earlier.

Pass through Parliament Square to Whitehall, where you’ll see the statues dedicated to notable Allied figures including Churchill, Eisenhower, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Sir Arthur Harris.
