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

The tour of the bunker is very informative and brings home the enormity of what was at stake in 1940 and the challenges faced - if a few people in that room got it wrong the Battle of Britain would have been lost, and so...More

Very enjoyable morning with family members at the B of B Bunker. The new visitor centre is excellent and the guided tour down to the bunker was a real previledge. Staff were all friendly and helpful, thanks for a super visit.

First visit since the massive investment. We were welcomed most cordially, informed of the exhibition and facilities with accuracy. Fascinated by all the carefully displayed exhibits. Thought provoking without being esoteric. Accessible yet not dumbing down. Intelligent and informative, beautifully achieved, well done

The exhibition hall is free flow. The bunker tour is a mixture of a talk and free flow. However it is quite a big space so you could move out of earshot.
