The St. Leonards Court air raid shelter requires descending 13 steps in low light conditions. Good footwear is advised at other sites which require walking on uneven grass.

The tour may not be suitable for very young children due to the nature of the sites.

The meeting point for the tours is Bus Stop Z, next to Richmond railway station.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
