Cabinet War Rooms

 6CM enjoyed a walking tour today of some of the UK’s most historic buildings.  We started on the south bank of the Thames, looking across the river at the magnificent view of the Houses of Parliament.  Then we stopped outside Westminster Abbey, walked down Whitehall to the Cenotaph and Downing Street, and then back past the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to Horseguards Parade and had lunch in St James’s Park (with large numbers of pigeons, sea gulls, ducks and geese!)  We circled the park and saw a troop of the Queen’s guard leaving Buckingham Palace and made our way to the Cabinet War Rooms.  

Before leaving we had talked about, and tried to imagine, what it must have been like to have been living in London in 1940, with the country under attack and fearful of invasion.  The painstakingly reconstructed, cramped underground war rooms helped to give a sense of this history and of the leadership and inspiration that Churchill offered the country in this critical period.

With thanks to Claire Hitchcock for the photography, here are some pictures from the day.
