Alpventures® Britain at War! Tour covers major historical sights and world-class museums between Cambridge, London and the English Channel. In London we will begin with a City Tour including all the most popular highlights; such as Big Ben, Parliament, Piccadilly Circus and Buckingham Palace. We will visit the famous Imperial War Museum and Churchill's Cabinet War Rooms, with leisure time to browse the museum shops. The Imperial War Museum includes a WWI narrative display of The Trench, a walk-through re-creation of a Front Line trench on the Somme in 1916. Among many important military weapons and vehicles, the WWII collection features The Blitz Experience, a carefully researched reconstruction of an air-raid shelter and blitzed street in 1940. We'll spend half a day aboard the HMS Belfast, a World War II Cruiser. She was launched in March 1938 and served throughout WWII, playing a leading part in the destruction of the German Battle Cruiser Scharnhorst at the Battle of North Cape and in the Normandy Landings. Our excursion north of the city will be to Bletchley Park and the Imperial War Museum of Aviation at Duxford. Once Britain's Best-Kept Secret, Bletchley Park is where will explore, experience and enjoy the top-secret world of iconic World War II codebreaking Huts and Blocks set within its atmospheric Victorian estate. Imperial War Museum - Duxford is much more than just a museum. Although best known for its 180 historic aircraft, Duxford's seven acres of indoor exhibition space include one of the finest collections of tanks and military vehicles in the country and a range of exhibitions, among them the recently opened Normandy Experience. Unlike other Tours, we don't leave out the Tank Museum in Bovington; we include a stop to see one of the world's largest and finest collection of tanks from unique WWI tanks to the latest British Army battle tank. The Tank Museum has a collection of over 300 vehicles from over 26 countries.
Experience World War II History in Southern England.
The last few days of the Britain at War! Tour take you to General Eisenhower's Supreme Headquarters for the D-Day operation at Southwick House near Portsmouth, the White Cliffs of Dover, and Kent; before returning to London to fly home. We will take in the Dover Castle and see the newly opened command bunkers underground, and we will visit the Battle of Britain Museum in Kent. We finish the Tour back in London, where you can spend additional days and take a later return flight home, or continue your travels to somewhere else. Book your hotel rooms and private tours and transfers on our website, or contact us for more information.
"This was my first organized Tour and I was very impressed. Your amount of knowledge on the subjects of World War II and the people and events surrounding the war was very extensive and impressive. I have gained a greater appreciation for Veterans and I had fun."
