visit to battle of britain bunker: wednesday 16 october

The Battle of Britain Bunker was the room from which most of the Battle of Britain, as well as the RAF’s part in D-Day, was coordinated. The Operations Room lies 60 feet underground (there is a lift). The plotting room with its large map table, squadron display boards, and balloon and weather states, is exactly as it was when Winston Churchill visited on 15 September 1940. There is a Visitor Centre with exhibitions and displays and a café and shop.  Full details of the visit are here.
