For modern history followers, the 28,000 Americans who died in the second world war are listed in a specially dedicated chapel in a key London landmark. We can also take you to Winston Churchill’s war rooms not far away and then introduce you to Churchill and the American general Dwight D Eisenhower (a future US president) both sharing a joke on a bench on a famous London street. Churchill himself was half American as his mother (born Jennie Jerome) came from Brooklyn, New York.
We can drive you by by Eisenhower’s wartime HQ at 20 Grosvenor Square and on to experience the London Blitz at the Imperial War Museum. You can get an insight into the Battle of Britain at the RAF Museum in Hendon, north London, including US fighters and bombers. Or why not get a taste of Allied naval might with a tour of HMS Belfast and what life was like aboard a battleship under constant threat from German U-boats.
