Military LondonLondon has a military history that stretches back over 2,000 years to when Julius Caesar forced a passage across the River Thames at Westminster in BC 54. This long history has left its mark not just in the landscape of London but also in the remarkable array of museums that illuminate the different aspects to the story of military London.
Please look at the choice of venues listed on the left for some ideas. Why not try a visit to the Cabinet War Rooms and Churchill Museum followed by a walking tour of Westminster, which has been at the heart of Britain's military decision making for so long, and include a visit to Westminster Abbey where many of the nations heros and leaders are buried?
Or see the Changing of the Guard followed by visits to the Guards Museum and the Horse Guards Museum. In the last, a one way viewing panel has been inserted so that the horses can be seen in their stables. The Horse Guard is changed here before the changing at Buckingham Palace, so a swift manoeuvre can combine the two.
Another great combination is to link a walking tour of the London Blitz with a visit to St Paul's Cathedral (a miraculous survivor), the Docklands Museum or The Imperial War Museum (both have Blitz exhibitions).
