Overview

The only original Battle of Britain RAF Fighter Group Operations Room open to the public. The Operations Room, in reality a series of rooms on 2 levels some 60 feet (18m) underground, is reached via 76 steps. The plotting room with its large map table, squadron display boards, balloon and weather states, is exactly how it was when Winston Churchill visited on 15th September 1940

This bunker had huge significance during WWII and, particularly, the Battle of Britain as it was the control point for fighter aircraft across the South of England. The guide was incredibly informative and the map room is well worth seeing. The site was an air...More

The visit was very memorable. Only the philistines of the world ( unfortunately many) have not been to this site. It is in terms of history more important than Hastings or dare I say, Westminster Abbey. The Battle of Britain was conducted at this location....More

If you love the history of WW2 this is a must. Unsuitable for people with any sort of walking problem as it is a very long way down. Once you are there it is worth the climb down. Witnessing and seeing how it was done...More

The guided tour is OK, but if you are not into WWII (i.e. normal person) the level of detail is a bit too much. The control-room with the big map is a highlight.

Very interesting place and our guide, Stan, was friendly and informative. Note that you need to book in advance and get driving instructions as it is not well signposted. As well as the historic map room there is an interesting small museum.
