Battle of Britain Tours
Dilip Sarkar is delighted to have joined the team of expert historians at Alan Rooney’s ‘The Cultural Experience’ to deliver unique Battle of Britain tours. Given that Dilip is a living link to countless of the Few – who better to regain you with true tales of aerial derring-do, and share the passion and knowledge of a lifetime?
In July 2021, Dilip led the first such five-day tour, calling at many locations of interest in London and the south-east. Some of these venues are must-visits, underpinning the Battle of Britain story, such as the former Fighter Command HQ at Bentley Priory and 11 Group Operations Room at Uxbridge, in addition to the National Memorial to the Few and Biggin Hill Sector Station. Others are off the beaten track and less obvious, such as Cuckmere Haven, near Beachy Head, where the Germans proposed to land in 1940, and the moving, intimate, roadside memorial to Pilot Officer Arthur Clarke on Romney Marsh – who remains buried with his Hurricane nearby.
Dilip’s Facebook posts throughout the Tour generated great interest and the experience well-received by the tourists involved. The next Tour is currently being formulated, with 4 star hotels and a luxury coach, what is there not to like?
Details of future tours, led by this leading and engaging Battle of Britain historian, will soon be available on The Cultural Experience website, along with many other tours.
