Bus tour: Wartime London
Travel on an authentic 1939 RT bus through the streets of London looking at the places associated with and affected by the Second World War.
The first half of the tour visits the City of London and looks primarily at the lives of ordinary Londoners – the effects of the bombing raids, the enervating lull, rationing, life in the shelters and the terrifying vengeance weapons that changed the life of the city in untold ways. You will also pay a short visit to the National Army Museum.
After a break for lunch, tour guide Russell Nash takes you to the West End examining the contributions of Churchill, Eisenhower,and the thousands of overseas servicemen who were based in London.
Discover the hotels where the marginalised and dispossessed monarchs of Europe were living, the theatres and dance halls, the contribution of the BBC and organisations such as SOE.
