We went along to the September airshow to see the two Lancasters flying. As is our usual practice, we like to get to places early, so allowed plenty of time. The queues started on the M11 and then it was stop go for a good couple of hours! We had pre-booked tickets, which was good as it was quickly closed... More

We spent a full day at the Museum and there was still plenty more to see and do. It offers a mind blowing range of aircraft with special areas covering the Battle of Britain, and the American aircraft past and present. They have the only example of the titanium SR71 Blackbird outside the USA, a B52 bomber an dozens of... More

From the fliers who came before the Wright Brothers to the spin off technologies from aerospace. This Imperial War Museum site opens with the history of flight and a display of UK designed and built aeroplanes. You could spend most of the day in this one hanger, but you will miss out on a huge number of other exhibits. There... More

We spent five hours here last weekend and the time flew by (no pun intended). There was so much to see it was unbelievable. Well worth the entrance fee. I now have information overload, previously I only had a passing interest, but now I'm hooked. Also, I can now say in truth that I have been on Concorde.

My colleagues and I visited Duxford on Tuesday and had a very enjoyable five hours (arrived late due to traffic,would have had longer) except for which I will start my review with. Admission price is £17.50 (included in this is a Voluntary Donation of 10%...If mentioned,which they did not you then only have to pay £15.90) to which they are... More

A pilgrimage for anyone with an interest in military and civil aviation. Apart from the preservation and restoration of airworthy historic aircraft, RAF Duxford gives even the novice visitor a thorough first-hand experience of military aviation through the ages. There is also an extensive collection of British airliners, as well as the original prototype Concorde surrounded by other iconic passenger... More

I went with my boyfriend who was really excited about the visit, expecting it to be quite a long day for me. However i was so happily surprised and we spent the whole time from 10-6 looking around and went up in a plane from 1943!! I loved the whole day and it was full of so much interesting information...

Now under normal circumstances, my wife bless her would not be in the slightest bit bothered about looking at planes , boats, tanks etc. she prefers stately homes and that sort of thing. But I have to say that Duxford changed all that. We were both amazed and taken aback on our first visit here. What a huge and interesting... More

A really large museum with lots to see, put aside at least a day. Living fairly local to the museum I tend to pop in at least once a year. Was a little disappointed this time as there seem to be little of no change from a year ago. However it was still a very enjoyable day. Being a visitor... More
