We visited yesterday and paid £55 for 3 adults to get in only to then find that the planes that you could previously walk through as part of the admission price are now extra! For 3 adults and 1 child it would be an extra £8.50 on top of the £55 admission price. This is simply greedy and we will... More

Quite expensive even for concessions, £14.00, but its great value for money. please arrive early to give yourself maximum time to explore the whole site at a leisurely pace. It is an educational experience and there are fantastic displays and interactive challenges. There were several aircraft taking off and landing during our stay and you can even pay and go... More

Sadly it was cancelled due to the weather but as we were on our way we decided to visit. Entrance staff were very friendly and as the rest of us had Tesco voucher tickets and kids are... More

It takes more than a day to see everything at Duxford! You can see so many museum and flying aircraft. It is one of the few places you could snap six spitfires on one shot. We had the awesome experience of visiting the "Land War" exhibit and walked through the D-Day montage to be buzzed overhead by a flying spitfire... More

We went to the airshow with the intention of showing the children the Red Arrows. First warning the queues to get into were massive we sat in traffic for 4 hours to travel 6 miles, fortunetly we had a picnic with us in the car. The show is well pieced together and it was busy but you do not miss... More

The museum is well worth a visit for young and old and a short drive from the John Barleycorn Hotel.

We visited for a birthday treat tiger moth flight for my dad and were very impressed with the museums, facilities and staff. Everything was spotless and the staff very friendly. The use of the mobility aid bus was fantastic and also the wheelchair hire. Would definitely recommend

Travelled from Cornwall for the air show. Got there early with silver passes and stayed to the end. Very well organised going in and leaving. Got out of the carpark with no trouble or waiting. The museum is just amazing. The air show was also brilliant. Having been to fairford air show earlier in the year having similar passes it... More
