Travelling to Duxford Airshows

  • Car Park Permits Almost Sold Out

    Travelling by car?

    Parking on site has sold out on Saturday. The last remaining permits for Sunday are still available. Please book your air show ticket and add a parking permit to your order if you intend to park onsite. Once they are gone, they are gone! 


    You can also travel via Park & Ride: Shuttle buses run from Trumpington Park and Ride (sat nav CB2 9FT) and are included in air show ticket prices. Park and ride will be in demand - get there early to secure a parking space and seats on shuttle buses. 


  • By train

    The best way to travel is by train! 

    Shuttle buses will run on 22 & 23 September from Cambridge and Royston train stations. Shuttles are included in the price of your air show ticket, but you must have your ticket available for inspection before you board the bus and again on arrival at IWM Duxford. Shuttles will be in demand and roads will be busy around the event. Travel early to avoid queues.


  • By motorbike

    Motorbikes do not need a parking permit as they can be parked on a small amount of hard standing ground on site in the East car park - you'll be directed as you approach IWM Duxford. But you will need an air show ticket to scan on arrival. Book your tickets now, before tickets sell out.
