Meet your guide outside London’s imposing Imperial War Museum, for your timed entry private tour. The Imperial War Museum was built whilst the First World War was still raging, and is the most extensive war museum in the world telling the many personal stories of loss and courage of ordinary people who found their lives torn apart by conflict. The museum houses collections from the First World War to present day. 

Your guide will take you to the newly installed World War II and Holocaust Galleries. The Imperial War Museum is the first in the world to house both these galleries under the same roof: you’ll be able to learn about the Blitz, the D Day Landings – with colour footage of the beaches – and how the war was playing out on all fronts, whilst the horrors of the Holocaust were being carried out. These vast and interactive galleries span two floors and contain many personal stories and accounts from real people from diverse communities. The collection contains 1,500 items from clothing, to weapons, to letters that bring to life a war that affected millions of people from London to Russia, America to Japan, Australia and New Zealand, China, the Philippines and all of Europe. 

Next, take a taxi with your guide to the Churchill War Rooms. With LivTours priority access, go straight into this top secret bunker that served as the Head Quarters of the British War machine. The Churchill War Rooms are a subterranean labyrinth of offices underneath Whitehall, the political epicentre of London. It was here that Prime Minister Winston Churchill along with his war cabinet of ministers, generals and spy chiefs worked, lived and slept during the agonising months and years of the Second World War. This historic site has remained exactly as it was when the lights were switched off in 1945! 

End in the museum dedicated to Churchill’s extraordinary life, or exit with your guide.
