IWM Duxford is Europe’s largest air museum with over 300 aircraft and objects on display. Get up close to Spitfires and Hurricanes; see a portion of the original Wright Brother plane; walk through Concorde; feel dwarfed by the size of a B-52 and stand in awe of Europe’s only SR-71 Blackbird – the fastest jet ever built.
Duxford played a central role in some of the most dramatic days in 20th century history - serving as a base for many of the Spitfire and Hurricane pilots during the Second World War. Learn about the role the site played during the First and Second World Wars and hear the stories of those who took part in key battles such as Dunkirk, D-Day and the Battle of Britain. See live conservation in action and watch restored aircraft take to the skies from the historic airfield.
Inside every hangar and exhibition - and outside them too - there are hundreds of large aircraft, vehicles, boats and more. Walk around them, inside them, above and below them and get the chance to see aircraft take off from our historic runway. Get up close to over a century of aviation.
