A little way out of Folkestone on top of the cliffs and overlooking the sea,a suitable and historic place to salute the many mainly young pilots who won the Battle of Britain. Not just British pilots,but Poles,Canadians,South Africans etc.

A must for aviation enthusiasts. Huge amount of 'stuff' and aircraft. Loads of bits and pieces of crashed aircraft and the pilot stories that go with them. Rare Boulton Paul Defiant. Managed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts.

We visited this wonderful museum today. It is certainly worth a visit and make plenty of time. I have never seen so many displays and so much information. It's not advertised enough.
