Our 10-day Britain at War Tour visits the intellectual and historical hotspots, carving out a clear journey through history that will help you understand and connect with this unparalleled moment in time. On this tour, we delve into the "fight for the skies" and discover the experiences of the besieged civilians during the months before the Royal Air Force fought off the German aerial assault. We then explore the origins of Operation Overlord, from the code-breaking at Bletchley Park to the leadership at Southwick House. In the last days of the journey, we visit The Tank Museum in Bovington, to learn about the history of tanks. We finish our tour with a visit to the standing stones at Stonehenge.

Detailed Highlights and Itinerary

Days 1-5
Arrival requirement (airport and time):
London (LHR), no later than 2 PM

After our orientation dinner in London, we will spend the next few days visiting the most important sites of the British war effort and the development of Operation Overlord. This leg focuses on World War II in England. In our exploration of London, Bletchley and Uxbridge, we will have the chance to investigate the war effort, discover its underlying tensions, interact with the innovations it brought about, and pay our respects to the combined efforts of the Allied troops. We visit the medieval Dover castle and its underground tunnel system that functioned as an air-raid shelter, underground hospital and military command center during the war.

Days 6-8

We travel to the southern coast of England, where we will experience the D-Day Story museum in Portsmouth before visiting the planning site of the Normandy Landings. We spend an entire day exploring the vehicular inventions at the Tank Museum in Bovington, that also houses the largest collection of tanks in the world. Our visit to Portsmouth would not be complete without seeing the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard that is home to the HMS Victory, the HMS Warrior and many more.

Days 9-10
Departure requirement (airport and time):
London (LHR), after 10 AM

During the last leg of our journey back towards London, we stop at one of the most famous landmarks in the United Kingdom, the prehistorical standing stones of Stonehenge, regarded as a British cultural icon. Our last stop will be at Littlecote House that was the regimental headquarters for the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division. Easy Company was part of this regiment, and they took off from here during the night of June 5-6, 1944 as part of the Normandy Landings. We conclude our tour with a farewell dinner. The next day, our Passengers are brought to London Heathrow airport for their return flights.
