Important note: The Britain at War Experience has now closed down, due to redevelopment at London Bridge station. There are currently no plans to reopen it.
Winston Churchill’s Britain At War Experience focuses solely on World War II, and tells the story of Londoner’s life during the Blitz – during the bombs, blackouts and rationing.
The museum itself has been built amongst some old railway arches, and a lift takes you down to a mocked-up air shelter. There you can see a huge collection of everyday items from ration books and gas masks, to toilet paper and tins of beef. There are also hundreds of posters, pictures and war photographs.
There are also several reconstructions to get you in the mood – the sights and sounds of a bombed-out street led you to the remains of a department store, destroyed by falling bombs.
There is also a club for American GIs, and a BBC radio mike broadcasting the King’s speeches to the nation.
