The Battle of Britain Bunker has now reopened with a new Visitor Centre, which has interactive displays for you and your family to learn more about the Battle of Britain. We also have family activities and handling objects to get more out of your visit. You can also go underground, and visit the Second World War Bunker, which played a key role in the Battle of Britain.
The Bunker housed the Fighter Command No.11 Group Operations Room throughout the Second World War, the room from which most of the RAF's side of the Battle of Britain was coordinated. Key decisions that would decide the fate of the nation were taken in the bunker throughout 1940 and it was thanks to the tireless work of the plotters and controllers that the RAF's fighter pilots managed to keep the Luftwaffe at bay.
