Whilst our all-encompassing school history trips to London cover a broad spectrum of themes, we can tailor your itinerary to a specific area of the curriculum – in this case the Second World War. You’ll focus on the aerial bombing attacks known as the Blitz, with visits to the Imperial War Museum and the Churchill War Rooms to see war through the eyes of those who lived through it.

As you journey through the city, you’ll tick off key landmarks that were hit in the bombings with time left over for sightseeing.
