Duxford is a fantastic place to spend a day. We arrived as early as we could having driven down from Derby and got stuck in straight away. First we went into the Airspace hanger which was huge. It has 30 historic British and Commonwealth aircraft, including military and civil types in it including Concorde. We had a walk through Concorde... More

Absolutely fantastic day out. Easy to get to, plenty of free parking and so much to see you will definitely need a full day. Very reasonable entry price and kids go free.

Not a lot can be said that hasn't already been said to be honest. The site is huge, spread out over the aerodrome, tons of exhibits from working aircraft to vehicles and the associated paraphernalia. You will fill your whole day here if you view everything and, like me, aren't one of those who just rush by and tick the... More

If you have ever thought of going to Duxford but haven't gone, Go! Easy to get to, fantastic static and flying displays. Check the website for special events. The history on display is amazing, covering the First and Second World Wars. The staff are both knowledgable and helpful. Listen in to other visitors talking about their experience with the aircraft,... More

Stopped off here on the way to the Norfolk broads and if I had known how much there was to see I would have given ourselves more time. Really enjoyed the US aircraft and the land warfare is a museum itself. It is spread of over a large area so be prepared for some walking but it dose mean even... More

It is a good day out, better when sunny like we had! Of course lots to see and if you follow the map and visit each exhibition, you probably will need a Whooooole day! We were also pleasantly surprised by lots of various planes taking off n landing n taking off n doing tricks on the air, like an air... More

So much to see, and a lot of walking to do but it was worth it. Friendly staff at the reception, they were very helpful. We saw the Concorde and went in, it`s not as big inside as you can imagine but it was beautiful. We saw other planes,big and small from all around the world. The American Hangar was... More

The venue is great - you can easily spend a whole day here as there is so much to do BUT you would need a second mortgage for coffee and a cake and frankly you would need to sell your children, your parents and possibly your soul to pay for a lunch. If you go here please take your own... More

What these people do day in day out to preserve teach and keep alive some of the most important historical pieces not just from the uk but from around the world is incredible. You really get a sense that everyone there wants you to see it all, in its glory and for you to realise how much effort went in... More
