Description

On Remembrance Sunday you can re-live World War I in Whitehall and meet the politicians who ran the show - close to each other and far from the front. Be there where men blocked the streets answering their call to enlist. Remember those amongst them and in the conscripted armies who died, and then understand how one unknown warrior could mean so much to so many. Get behind the public personas to encounter the intelligence chief with a bathtub in his office, and a foreign secretary with a passion for birdsong. But also feel the difference war brought to Westminster – parks as offices, The Mall as munitions museum, and a square where calls for peace were silenced as it too was commandeered for war service. Come to rest at the Cenotaph which explains why a war started in euphoria but ended not in victory celebration but in sober reflection. Your qualified City of Westminster guides Charlie, Emmanuel and Mark are an established team who will give you a unique insight into a centre of power where a Great War became a World War.
