London & the Second World War 1939-1945

Tour Introduction

For those studying the historic environment of London and the Second World War, 1939–45, Anglia is delighted to offer a one-day tour which explores the streets of the City and focuses on themes such as:

  • the city and its people in 1939
  • the nature of attacks on the city
  • the impact of the Blitz on civilian life
  • the capital’s response to the war

Students will not only have the opportunity to see locations in the city such as St Paul’s Cathedral, Smithfield Market and the ruins of St Dunstan’s in the East but also to visit the excellent Museum of London in the Docklands where you can discover more about the first attacks on the docks.

From the Blitz to the V-weapons, this tour will explore how the nation’s capital dealt with an unprecedented threat and terrifying reality.
