Ideal starter before the Flying Legends air show at Duxford. The museum has grown over the past years, including an interactive museum, excellent located cafetaria and nice gift shop. But central to all this is the statute of a sitting man looking at the skies,...More

My second visit here as the first time the place was shrouded in fog. A good car park and parking costs £1 per hour. A walk to the edge of the site and I was rewarded with stunning views of the English Channel and Folkestone....More

Unplanned visit. Well worth going to see this lovely tribute to the “Few”. Well set out with a large car park(small fee). Cafe on sight over looking the White Cliffs. A very thought provoking tribute.

Educational, informative and interactive displays. Plenty of parking spaces with disabled access. Reasonably priced cafe and shop, clean modern facilities with welcoming staff. Will definitely be visiting again. Even lucky enough to be there when there was a fly past by a Spitfire!

We visited the Memorial on Saturday 30/06, the day before Armed Forces Day. The grounds had marquees erected for the next days events, but we still enjoyed the grounds, the views out to sea and the wall to all the pilots that served during those...More

Dear Kimcole - I am sorry you found the cafe short on provisions the day after our busiest weekend of the year. While we try to anticipate the demand for scones, Memorial Day (the day before your visit) had been a particularly busy one and...More
