A British Concorde, Spitfire, and Lancaster are among the over 200 international aircraft at IWM Duxford, Britain’s largest aviation museum. Housed on a former Royal Air Force airfield, the museum also has tanks, military vehicles, and naval vessels, including two midget submarines from World War II. A Battle of Britain exhibit is located in an original 1917 Belfast. A museum within a museum, the strikingly modern American Air Museum honors the 30,000 U.S. airmen who died flying from UK bases during World War II, as well as those who fought in battles since then.

As a person coming from Southampton, home of the Spitfire even I was impressed how many they have ! Every member of the Team I encountered had beyond comprehensive knowledge and very approachable... more »
Excellent museum for anyone interested in aviation, lots of things to see and do, occasionally you will see some flying as well! more »
Great place to spend a day. Very educational and there are so many displays to look at. It is all very well put together and very clean. You can expect to spend at least 3 hours here to see it all, but likely even longer. There are 2 cafes and 1 restaurant. The restaurant's food is pretty good. They have a great gift shop as well.
Absolutely love this place! Incredible wealth of knowledge, amazing vehicles and demonstrations. The Battle of Britain show was incredible! I would definitely recommend visiting Duxford. It's an amazing day out with so much to see. Truly fascinating.
