Full description
Explore Western Approaches HQ, which was a top-secret bunker vital to the war effort during WWII. Explore the labyrinth of rooms where over 300 people secretly worked during the war years. Walk through hidden rooms and discover how operations in the bunker protected the tactics of the British Armed Forces on the Western Approaches. See the documents and tools which were used to monitor enemy convoys, and subsequently, inform the British government. Discover one of only two surviving wartime phones which had a direct connection to the London War Cabinet. See where Commanders, the Women's Royal Naval Service, and Women's Auxiliary Air Force personnel worked day and night in the Operations Room. Learn how they monitored convoy routes and vital shipping lines, pin-pointing enemy locations on a huge map wall.
