Join one of our expert IWM guides in a behind-the-ropes exploration of the iconic Avro Lancaster. Starting with the design of the aircraft by Roy Chadwick, you will be guided through the bomber’s illustrious history, from the celebrated Dams Raid to the controversy of ‘area bombing’ under Bomber Harris. Then enter the rear of the fuselage and learn about the heroism of the young men in Bomber Command and the harsh conditions they faced in combat.

The talk will include a 45 minute talk outside the aircraft followed by a 10 minute session inside the rear of the aircraft with our guide.

Access to the inside of the Lancaster is limited due to the nature of the aircraft. A small viewing platform is in place to allow customers to view inside the rear section of the aircraft. Access to the aircraft is via a flight of steps and a small door with a ledge. Customers who have a concern regarding their ability to access the aircraft should contact us in advance to discuss their needs.
