“Visit Imperial War Museum Duxford for a huge day out. See historic aircraft take to the skies from the airfield where Spitfires first flew. Get up close to gigantic aircraft and uncover hundreds of personal stories. Walk in the footsteps of the men and women who served and discover how Duxford protected Britain's skies during the Second World War. IWM Duxford, plan your visit today.”

Explore IWM Duxford as part of your ticket price - the historic airfield that 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, 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.
