Discover how ordinary Londoners faced the challenges of life at home during the Second World War through the story of the Allpress family. Learn how they coped with rationing, evacuation, war work and events on the home front from the London Blitz to V Day. 

Explore reconstructions of rooms as they would have been in the 1940s and see how the war affected life at home. Find out how radios emerged and connected people in Britain with those on the fighting front and discover the different wartime roles - both male and female - held by members of the Allpress Family.
