Place worth visit if you are around and worth traveling to if you are interested in history/subject. Well preserved, the guide during the tour was good. Some extended tour with visit to these few remaining closed areas would be even better :).

If you're interested in the Battle of Britain, you should strongly consider visiting. The hour-long guided tour takes you deep underground into the Bunker, including the room from which RAF operations in SE England were directed during WWII. My one complaint is that the guide...erm...wasn't...More

Lovely afternoon, both educational and humbling. The bunker is a time capsule you can walk around. Informative guides and exhibits of the era. The visitor centre is amazing. Aircraft, guns, searchlights and interactive displays and exhibits. You can even dress up in period uniforms. £7...More

Spent over two hours visiting this fantastic new museum. As a local resident I had never fully appreciated the history of the bunker itself and the role it played during the 2nd World War. The brand new building is very impressive and well designed and...More

This attraction has been saved from the developers of the old RAF Uxbridge base. Thank goodness! It is a tremendous exhibition showing the control of the RAF defenders of wartime Britain. It should be compulsory education for all children as it brings history to life....More

Yes you can free flow the exhibition hall which is very informative but not sure about the bunker tour, you’d need to phone first and check this out. It’s certainly very interesting. The exhibition hall is small but has... More
