The Battle of Britain Bunker is an underground operations room at RAF Uxbridge, formerly used by No. 11 Group Fighter Command during the Second World War. Fighter aircraft operations were controlled from there throughout the War but most notably during the Battle of Britain and on D-Day. Today it is run by Hillingdon Council as a heritage attraction with attached museum. A new visitor centre above ground opened in March 2018.

The Bunker is located at RAF Uxbridge, not far from Uxbridge town centre and Uxbridge Underground station.

  • Excellent museum, well laid out, very informative & covers the subject brilliantly. Well worth the tour down the bunker, if you can manage the 76 steps. Jack, our guide, was very good at telling us...

  • This place is a goldmine slap bang in the middle of Hillingdon! For those interested in military history, especially the Battle of Britain, it’s the place to go. The volunteers who work there are extremely helpful and knowledgeable and give you a real insight into what went on behind the scenes in 1940. It’s such a great place to go but for those with mobility issues, you may struggle walking down the stairs to the bunker. The visitors centre is accessible though.
  • Surreal and moving. Even the walk down the steps to the bunker gave me chills as I was transported back to 1940, imaging the shoes that previously descended the same path. The mass of information processed and rapid decisions made is astonishing. The new welcome and information centre is impressive and worth a walkthrough as well!
