WELCOME TO
BATTLE OF BRITAIN TOURS

‘Battle of Britain Tours’ takes you back in time to the summer of 1940 and tells you the evocative and nostalgic stories of being a fighter pilot in the Battle of Britain.  You will hear their stories – often in their own words – about  where they came from, their education and training, why they flew, their experience of being scrambled and being in action, and how they coped with the inevitable loss of life.

Under the expert guidance of tour leader, Dr Anthony Medhurst, your tour will be informative, relaxed and thought-provoking. It will give you an unforgettable insight and experience of Churchill’s Few who fought, and often lost their lives, for their country at its time of greatest danger.

"Let us brace ourselves to our duty and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth lasts for a thousand years, men will still say,

This was their finest hour."
