Duxford's historic site

Explore how Britain’s air defences developed from the First World War through to the Cold War, and discover how the RAF defended its skies during key battles in the Second World War.

In the Duxford’s People in the Battle of Britain exhibition, explore seven personal stories of those who served at RAF Duxford during this famous aerial battle. RAF Duxford was pivotal in the Battle of Britain and the first Spitfires flew from the historic airfield that is still in use today.
