Bury St Edmunds Guildhall WW2 Ops Room 2024

Formerly the chamber where the Town Council met, the room was set up in 1938 for use during WW2 and became the Royal Observer Corps Centre, protecting Suffolk and relaying vital messages to RAF crews at local air bases. The Operations Room is a wholly immersive environment that will take one through a complete cycle of events, from spotting, to tracking, to reporting aircraft movements in the local skies.
