Battle Of Britain Bunker
The No.11 (Fighter) Group Operations Room at RAF Uxbridge was responsible for planning and coordinating the air defence of London and South East England during World War II. As well as bearing the brunt of the Luftwaffe onslaught during the Battle of Britain, the Operations Room was responsible for controlling fighter operations during the Dunkirk Evacuations and the Normandy Landings.
Today the room is shown exactly as it was on 15th September 1940, the day on which Winston Churchill visited and witnessed the conduct of the most significant day of the battle of Britain.
Although RAF Uxbridge closed in 2010, the Ministry of Defence have granted permission for the Bunker enclave to continue to be referred to as RAF Uxbridge. Day to day support of the Bunker is provided by RAF Northolt.
This is a free trip for currently enrolled Brunel Language Centre students, who are studying a Pre-Sessional English Course.
We will travel to the bunker in a group and will leave the Language Centre Reception (Russell Building), promptly at 1.30. Please make sure that you bring your Student ID card with you.
We expect to arrive at the Bunker at 2pm for our private guided tour.
At the end of the day you may either return to the campus with us (around a 15 minitue walk back to campus) or continue into Uxbridge.
Tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
