Very emotional as my father was a pilot during the second World War. There were two retired RAF gentlemen showing us around. The tour is the bunker only and takes about an hour. The museum you do yourself. During holiday season it would be advisable to book. It is about a six minute walk from the Uxbridge train station. They have a lovely cafe if you have to wait awhile for the tour. The bunker is exactly as it was on the day and the significance of the colours and lights all make sense by the end. Amazing feat when you consider there were no mobile phones or social media. Well worth the visit.
Very informative few hours spent today at the Battle Of Britain Bunker exhibition. Cost for two adults just £18.00, great value. The 2-hour tour was fantastic (we were so lucky to have ex-RAF Warrant Officer and exhibition creator Chris Wren as our guide) and was well worth doing. The Bunker itself has been wonderfully restored with public money (Government and Council) and now looks identical to as it was in 1940. The main exhibition (in the larger building next to the bunker) is well designed, full of all the history around the Battle of Britain, and also highly interactive with video, audio and playable exhibits. Be aware of the 76 steps down to the bunker, and back up - but we felt it was easier if you took your time. Weekdays obvs quieter but you might run into a school group! Very nice cafe and shop also. Book online in advance too. Enjoy.
