Left spellbound by the 2017 blockbuster ‘Darkest Hour’? Repeat the experience offscreen, with our new London tour. The movie bagged 6 nominations for Academy Awards and an Oscar for Best Actor Oldman. Our latest adaption will have you waxing eloquent too. Travel back to 1940 in a time machine (in one of our traditional London Black Cabs, which doubled up as fire engines in the World War 2). Your Private Driver Guide, an enthusiastic war historian, storms you through the violence of ‘The Blitz’. Feel the jitters as you visualise Nazi Germany threatening Western Europe and Great Britain’s very existence. Follow in the footprints of Winston Churchill and trace the turn of events from that unsettling era at Westminster and Whitehall. For an apt closure to a war-themed tour, pick Churchill War Rooms, Imperial War Museum or Warship HMS Belfast. Leave the headache of pre-ordering and pre-paying for skip-the-line tickets to our concierge team, while you have the time of your life.
