Battle of Britain Bunker RAF Uxbridge

Recommended Posts

OK. Hi, i know this is nothing to do with MVs, but well worth a mention. With the opening of the Battle of Britain Bunker to the public at weekends this year, i thought i would make a visit. It is somewhere i have always wanted to go for some years now, as it is on my doorstep, but with RAF Uxbridge being still a working base until 2010, visiting was limited and only open for one day a year, or pre arranged visits could be done by advanced appointment. Anyway checking the B o B B web site i saw that the last weekend they are open this year is August 31st 2013, then closed for the winter, so thought i would get a visit in quick. It is free to get in but they do recommend a donation of £3, but well worth the fiver that i donated, as long as it keep this important peace of history alive. Anyway enough chatter in my opinion well worth a visit next year if anyone is interested and spread the word. Sorry not able to upload any pics as files are to big.

Hi, I agree with you. I visited with a pre-arranged group visit. What a fantastic atmosphere to stand where Churchill stood and asked 'What reserves have you' and the answer was 'None!! They're all up'.

Be British and Be Proud!!!!!

Update, The Battle of Britain Bunker is now open again at weekends without appointment. Well worth a visit to anyone who maybe interested. Just check the website as there are one or two weekends in June and July that it is not open.
