Churchill's Britain at War Experience
64 - 66 Tooley Street, SE1
Churchill's Britain at War Experience brings a dramatic portion of British history back to life with film studio style special effects and is fun for all ages. The Experience is not a museum of war, tanks and guns. It is devoted to the ordinary people who lived through the war. You enter into a London Underground lift and emerge out back in war-torn London. You can shelter from air raids in a crowded tube station or an Anderson Shelter , listen to the famous speeches by the British wartime leaders. Browse through a 1940's shopping arcade, visit the Rainbow Corner club, a favourite with the GIs. Finally you walk through a bombed street, listen to the cries of the trapped and the rescuers as bombers drone overhead and the sirens sound. The smokey air smells of scorched wood as all around rescuers and emergency services do their dangerous jobs.
