Owner description: IWM Duxford tells the story of the impact of aviation on the nature of war and on people's lives. Set within Britain's best-preserved Second World War fighter station, seven impressive hangars filled with extraordinary collections and state-of-the-art exhibitions take you on an unforgettable journey through times of war and peace.

This is such a fabulous place,and not just for plane enthusiasts. A very big place you can cover it all in a day with scope to return. Each hangar is on a theme for example one particular hangar was called the America air museum, inside it contained stunning examples of a B-17 flying fortress and a SR-71 blackbird and the place was packed to the rafters literally.
Another one I would recommend is the Land Warfare which houses artillery from the first world war and lots of tanks etc leading to the present day.
A great attraction is concorde whereupon you can climb aboard, its so narrow inside!
You can look around a few others as well.
Lots to see and plenty of refreshment stops too.
Highly recommended.

Frequently come to the airshows here, great fun. Main hangar, land warfare and american hangars the best.

Fantastic day out! Travelled with 4 small children, 3 grandparents, 2 parents 1 uncle and 2 teens. Everybody had a fantastic time. Staff were super helpful & knowledgable, attractions were wonderfully displayed, and we got to go onto old planes!! The Airshow was not noisy, and superb fun. Everyone thought it was the best day out we had!

Loved the whole day - staff courteous and helpful, and the displays are amazing! We opted for the North Side Tour, which, although it shows you around buildings, they are in areas not usually seen by the public - guide was very good.
