Got any questions about the tour? Check out our 'Frequently Asked Questions' (FAQs).

  • Where will we meet?
    London walking tours will meet on Parliament Square which is directly opposite the House of Commons, Westminster. The tour will begin next to the statue of Winston Churchill. If you are travelling by tube, get out at Westminster station and turn right. Cross over the road towards Big Ben at the traffic lights. Turn right. As you approach the busy inter-section, look over the road for the statue of Churchill and cross using the pedestrian crossing. Guests on East Kent tours can be picked up outside Canterbury West railway station or Dover Western Docks, CT17 9DQ and returned at the end of their tour. Please ask for further details.
  • What should I wear?
    The London Walking Tour will take two hours and would normally involve walks of between 8-10 minutes. Even though the tour is almost entirely flat, it is advised that you wear comfortable shoes in order to maximise your enjoyment of the tour. Battle of Britain tours will continue to operate whatever the weather. It is recommended that you bring an umbrella in the event of an unexpected downpour (this is Britain after all!) and a waterproof/water-repellent jacket. However do check the local weather forecast to help you dress accordingly. Please note that there will be a one stop tube journey on the Jubilee Line between Westminster and Green Park. Escalators and lifts are available at both stations. The East Kent day tours will be accessed throughout by a suitable vehicle. Depending on the circumstances on the day, guests may need to approach the Imperial War Graves at Hawkinge on foot. If so, please allow for a walk of 300 yards on a tarmac surface. If you wish to pay your respects at the graves of the fallen, please note that can only be approached on the grass. Suitable footwear may be required if the grass is damp or wet.

    Battle of Britain tours are best suited for children aged 12 and over who are accompanied by a responsible adult.
