Highlights

From the 7th September 1940 to the 11th May 1941, London suffered under continual aerial bombardment from the German Luftwaffe the like of which the world had never before seen and fortunately rarely has since.  It was known as The Blitz and the face of London was changed forever as well as the character of Londoners too.  Whilst much has changed in the intervening years, there are still reminders of these dark days. Join us on this very special private tour which will take you to places that big group and bus tours could never hope to go.
