Starts at Apollo Victoria, Wilton Road SW1V 1LG. This walk has a definite Royal Air Force connection as we first learn of the events of Battle of Britain Day, 15 September 1940, which culminated‍‍‍ in a major air battle over Central London. We then hear of the work of the Civil Defence services and discover surviving evidence of air raid shelters. We discover several American connections to Wartime London including a visit to the site of one of Ed Murrow‘s Blitz broadcasts. We learn about Air Chief Marshall Sir Keith Park, the ‘Defender of London‘ as well as hearing about a pre-war ‘Nazi‘ funeral in London. The walk passes through London‘s ‘Theatreland‘ where we hear how the industry ‘kept calm and carried on‘ before we finish our walk at St Clement Danes, Central Church of the RAF and learn of it‘s destruction on the last night of the Blitz. Walk guided by Steve Hunnisett.

The walk is approximately 2 hours 45 minutes duration and finishes at St Clement Danes Church.

The walk costs £11.00 per head (pay on the day).
