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.

DUXFORD IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT: FIGHTER NIGHT

After the Flying Day ends, you can book to stay and enjoy an evening to photograph famous fighter aircraft up close. Fighter Night will feature six Second World War fighters, brought to life by period vehicles and living history groups, against the backdrop of Duxford's historic buildings and airfield.
