Don’t forget to visit the Churchill War Rooms. Other military museums worth trying are the Imperial War Museum, National Army Museum and HMS Belfast. Or how about a day-trip to Chatham Dockyards to see a submarine, and Bletchley Park to see the Enigma machines? And there are always lots of military parades in London.
