Part of the Imperial War Museum, the museum comprises the Cabinet War Rooms, a historic underground complex that housed a British government command centre throughout the Second World War, and the Churchill Museum, a biographical museum exploring the life of British statesman Winston Churchill.
Construction of the Cabinet War Rooms, located beneath the Treasury building in the Whitehall area of Westminster, began in 1938. They became operational in August 1939, shortly before the outbreak of war in Europe. They remained in operation throughout the Second World War, before being abandoned in August 1945 after the surrender of Japan.
The group will depart from Brighton Rail Station and travel via train to London. If you would like to meet them there please write this in the ‘other requirements’ section of the questionnaire when you book or contact FDNstudents@sussex.ac.uk
The group leader will have the rail tickets so there is no need to collect anything from the office.
