Since we have visited London twice previously, I was looking for some different things to see on our most recent visit. My husband enjoys watching the Military Channel (in the US) and their programs on WWII, so I planned a visit to the RAF Museum. Even though I am not much for military history, I was quite impressed. The collection of aircraft on display is really wonderful, extending across five buildings. When we visited mid-week at the end of November, it was quiet and almost empty. There is so much to see here - we spent several hours, but you could easily spend much more time than that. We really recommend this museum - it was one of the highlights of our trip.
Side note- if you are a tourist with a Zone 1-2 travelcard, you will need to pay a supplement as I believe Colindale is Zone 4. Oops, but the attendant at the tube station was in holiday spirits and he let us through both coming and going. Thank you! Also, the museum is about a 10+ minute walk from the tube station.
