The Airshow was great. We never tire of the Museum. We will not, in future, buy the Gold Tickets with Luncheon. Have done so for 4 years now and it really is not worth it. Definitely not value for money. There are plenty of areas where you can get a an excellent view.

We returned to Duxford after 8 years, this time especially for the Flying Legends Airshow. The previous visit we had spent an entire day exploring all the hangars and wonderful aircraft on display and had not managed to see it all by any means. This year we went onboard the restored aircraft standing outside, manned by volunteers. What dedicated people... More

Come and listen to the Duxford symphony and enjoy the roar of 11 spitfires passing 30 meter above the deck 100 meter in front of you. Then enjoy the chase of two ME109 by a P51 and a couple of spits. Take a deep breath here coms the corsair throttle to the firewall any lower and it could be used... More

We spent 5 hours looking around and were exhausted with the walking but certainly felt we had value for money at the end of the day - am glad we didn't take small children as not sure their little legs could cope with all the walking involved ; for a museum that involves various forms of transport and charges a...

First of all I must say that I have visited Duxford before a couple of years ago and paid the (then) admission price of around £14.00. The static displays inside the hangers consisted of RAF and the USAF building further along the runway. A colleague and I visited Duxford again yesterday ((July 18th) and found the admission price had risen... More

We went to the Duxford Air Show 14 July and although the weather was quite inclement, everyone attending seemed to have a great day. The War Museum and all the displays are outstanding. How they get some of the planes into the hangar displays defies gravity. They even had a Concorde displayed plus a TSR2. Despite the weather (dark clouds... More

We paid quite a lot to see the Flying Legends Air Show which started at 2 pm but it included parking outside in a field and entry to all the different hangar museums. My husband and his son were very excited . I was surprised how much I enjoyed it as there was an excellent commentary by an Australian and... More

Flying Legends 2014, went as we do every year to the Saturday show, glorious weather and glorious piston engine aircraft. Great to walk the flight line and get up close to those classic aircraft. Great and informative museums and helpful staff.
