    Battle of Britain bunker, Uxbridge.

    If you're stuck for things to do, in the school holidays.
    The BofB bunker, on the old RAF Uxbridge site, is now fully open, a fantastic place to visit.
    Great heritage and a site of national importance.
    Perhaps combine with a trip to LEGOLAND! or a behind the scenes trip to Wembley!

      Great, just great. I finished working in Uxbridge after 8 and a half years last week and NOW I find out about this.
      Don't make me run. I am full of chocolate.

      Ironically I've worked in Uxbridge for years but never visited. Shame on me. I will make a point of visiting in the next few weeks.
      A new housing estate has gone up over the old RAF base I believe.

      I lived on RAF Uxbridge for a while as a kid - the house was nice enough, but I don't remember Uxbridge as a place being pleasant at all. This was late 80's, so it may well be different now.

      I remember watching QCS doing drill practice on the parade ground quite regularly.

      Probably can do in an hour, but worth spending time, to take most of it in.
      You're something to do with TFL, if I remember rightly?

      Uxbridge hasn't really changed at all, I avoid it most times.
      QCS now at RAF Northolt, ironically there's an Albion fan amongst their motley crew.

      Just a sample of what's on offer, especially good to be down the bunker on a day like today, lovely and cool
