Take a look at our Battle of Britain bunker accessibility virtual tours. The Battle of Britain Bunker was home to Fighter Command (RAF Uxbridge) in World War II. It was the control centre for air operations during the D-Day landings.
The Battle of Britain Bunker
The momentous decisions about which air squadrons to scramble to defeat the Luftwaffe were made here at the Bunker. Winston Churchill visited on several occasions. It was here in 1940 he was first moved to speak the words: “Never in the history of mankind has so much been owed by so many to so few”. The Bunker is 60 feet (18 metres) underground, and was suceesfully kept secret from the Nazis during the second world war. Its success as a secret command centre unfortunately makes it inaccessible to many people who would love to see it.
Accessibility Virtual Tours – Making Inaccessible Spaces Available for All
The Bunker’s setting is deep underground, and only accessible by the 76 stairs. Thus the elderly or infirm, the disabled or claustrophobic could all be unable to visit. The solution was a high resolution 360 virtual tour. This tour can be viewed by visitors to The Battle of Britain Bunker Exhibition and Visitor Centre.
We are delighted that our photography will open the Battle of Britain Bunker’s doors to people who would otherwise never be able to see inside. Please click the ‘Launch Project’ button above to be taken to the tour.
