Down Memory Lane or amassing new knowledge, it is all at the IWM. A great day out with so much to see. Visit their Web Site to see just what is there. Good for kids, good for adults and superb for old aviators.

We are biased, for one of our planes is parked at Duxford, but every now and then we need to see all these beautiful war planes. Listen to the sound of the engines and see them fly. The people who work there do their utmost...More

We visited both the British and American museums, both were brilliant with a good display of aircraft. The entrance fee is on the high side when compared with Cosford which is tree to enter, however still a good experience

Fantastic museum spread around Duxford Airfield with a number of interesting planes e.g. Early prototype Concorde, Vulcan and Blackbird spy plane. Interesting features on the Battle of Britain and generally fascinating location with good aircraft and Tank exhibits.

Good museum, lots to see and all very interesting. Only negative is it's fairly expensive to go in, the cafes are very expensive and only one of the outdoor planes was open to go onboard which was a big shame.

We came again last week and yet again, had to pay full entry price for a 93 year old WW2 bomber veteran. Like we did for a group of vets in 2011 and 2009. No free entry for WW2 veterans. Even when we asked prior...More

Hi. There are a number of benches scattered around the airfield but on air show days trying to get a seat on these can be very hard. I would highly recommend bringing your own seats if you can. I hope you enjoy your... More

If you need a wheel chair I suggest you book it in advance as the number of electric chairs is limited.
