Lecture Theatre at the Battle of Britain Bunker, Visitors’ Centre

 

 

ACCESS: The venue has two spaces for wheelchair users. Those with mobility issues can take the lift down to the bottom of the auditorium, and then the whole bottom row is accessed by going up 3 stairs (see photo). There are 15 chairs in this row.

LOCATION: The Visitor Centre entrance is on Wren Avenue, Uxbridge, via St Andrew's Road and is signposted by brown tourist signs from neighbouring roads. ​There is free parking (including accessible spaces) but it is limited, so the use of public transport is encouraged.

ON FOOT:
Approx 20 mins walk to bunker from Uxbridge station. Walking from Uxbridge can take you along the roads - or walk through the recently opened Dowding Park, also part of the the old RAF Uxbridge site. The area is still under development so routes may be blocked by construction. There is signage in the park to the bunker, but for now, we recommend the road route up to the bunker. From Uxbridge Underground Station, turn left onto the High Street. Follow the High Street to a large roundabout with an underpass. St Andrew's Gate is on the opposite side. Next to St Andrew's Gate is a footpath fenced-in on either side. This is a shortcut to St Andrew's Road. Follow the alley footpath to the end. Ignore the signpost in the park by the fence as the new development has blocked access areas. Instead follow St Andrew's Road around the perimeter of Dowding Park. As the road bends, continue forwards, (the path now sloping upward) and past two road barriers. Continue up this road until you see a sign pointing towards The Battle of Britain Bunker Exhibition and Visitor Centre. At the junction, continue to follow the road round the bend, taking care as you leave the footpath and past a large building on your right called Hillingdon House, currently under development. The Battle of Britain Bunker Exhibition and Visitor Centre is at the end of this road - Wren Avenue. There is a footpath back down the hill from the visitor centre, but no path currently exists across Dowding Park.

BY CAR: The sat nav postcode is UB10 0BE (different from postal address). From the A40, follow the signs for Uxbridge. Go past the entrance to Uxbridge College, then at the traffic lights turn left onto Honeycroft Hill. At the bottom of the hill, turn right onto Honey Hill. Immediately after the entrance to ACS International School (on your left) turn right onto St Andrew's Road. At the junction turn slightly left and follow the road past Hillingdon House. Do not turn hard left into the housing estate. The Battle of Britain Bunker car park is at the end of the road.
