IWM Duxford - Whats Here

IWM Duxford

Entry to IWM Duxford for the day is included in your Duxford Dash ticket price.

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.

Make your own piece of Duxford history

IWM Duxford’s airfield has a story that stretches back over a hundred years.

It was here that pilots learned to fly the revolutionary bi-planes of the First World War. It was home to subsonic jet fighters during the Cold War. But it was during the Second World War that Duxford made history. By 1939, Duxford was a sector station of No.12 Group Fighter Command. Eventually a ‘Big Wing’ of five squadrons flew from Duxford and Fowlmere (Duxford’s satellite airfield), led by Squadron Leader Douglas Bader.

And it eventually became the award-winning museum we know today, home to the Duxford Dash! This unique running event challenges you to conquer the runway that made history.

Whatever your motivation - we can't wait to welcome you to Duxford Dash! Sunday 17 October 2021, IWM Duxford, Cambridgeshire.
