Air Museum

Have you ever wanted to get up close to the aircraft that won the Battle of Britain? You can do all that and so much more at IWM Duxford – Europe’s largest air museum with more than 300 aircraft and objects on display.

One of the most extraordinary exhibits comes from the very birth of flight itself – a portion of the original Wright Brothers plane. You can also walk through a Concorde, feel dwarfed by the sheer vastness of a B52 and stand in awe of Europe’s only SR17 Blackbird.


Duxford site

You can learn all about the history of the Duxford site itself, too. The airfield played a huge role during both WWI and WWII. You can hear stories of those who took part in key battles such as Dunkirk, D-Day and the Battle of Britain.
