The first & original
Coventry Blitz Walk Experience!
As featured on BBC Coventry and Warwick, Central ITV and Mercia Radio
2010 was the 70th anniversary of the Coventry Blitz - to commemorate this poignant event in the city’s history, we launched the first ever 'World War II Coventry Blitz Walk Experience' which is now a permanent part of our regular tours programme
What participants on the Coventry Blitz Walk Experience have said.........
"Thank you very much indeed for the Blitz Walk Experience yesterday morning. It was excellent in every way: informative, humorous, thought-provoking, and I know how much participants had got from it. I almost said enjoyed, but that's not the appropriate word when talking about a night like November 14th, 1940. Your tour certainly brings the events of that night to life, and congratulations on thinking of the idea and of putting it together. I only wish it had been on offer before I retired from teaching because, whenever I brought my history club over to Coventry, I always felt that there was a dimension missing, and your tour would have filled the gap". Mr R W - Loughborough
"We really enjoyed the Blitz Walk today" Mr A G -Warwickshire
"You opened our eyes to what went on and made us want to find out more"! Thank you for all your efforts in keeping these memories alive - lest we forget". Mrs E R - Coventry
"I was pleasantly surprised to find new stories and angles explored on the tour. It was also very entertaining and it was a really nice touch that the characters adopted were real life relatives of the tour guides. The use of the old photos was especially effective as we were positioned in just the right spot to appreciate how much
