Military events in London

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
