IWM Duxford - Whats Here

IWM Duxford

Entry to IWM Duxford for the day is included in your Flying Days entry ticket.

IWM Duxford stands apart from other aviation museums because the site is an exhibit itself. It 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.

Inside every hangar and exhibition - and outside them too - there are hundreds of large aircraft, vehicles, tanks and more. Walk around them, inside them, above and below them and discover stories about the people whose lives they have affected.

We'll be releasing more Flying Days tickets, Duxford Summer Air Show and Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show tickets soon!
