As our name suggests, we offer guided walks through selected areas of London where, if one knows where to look, there is a vast amount of our wartime history still to be seen and many stories to be told about the Battle of Britain, The Blitz, the V-Weapons campaigns and general life in Wartime London.
All our walks are illustrated with archive photos that provide a ‘then and now’ perspective, artefacts from the period for the group to inspect as well as a wealth of eye-witness personal accounts that help bring the walks to life.
Our knowledge of the localities we cover as well as the history of those times, both from the level of the ordinary Londoner as well as those making the top level decisions, coupled with an intimate understanding of the various organisations involved and the hardware used, make our walks a unique and fascinating experience for the walker, whether you are a serious history buff, or just an interested visitor.
In addition to our Guided Walks, we can offer research services both for individuals and organisations - whether you are trying to trace the history of your local neighbourhood during the Blitz, or where an ancestor may have served in one of the Civil Defence organisations or the Home Guard.
Finally, we can provide talks to Schools, Local History Societies or any organised groups on any facet of London at War, The Blitz, or the ‘Home Front’ in general and wherever possible, we will tailor the talk to cover the locality involved.
