IWM Duxford War Museum

Discover IWM Duxford. 

IWM Duxford is Europe’s largest air museum with over 300 aircraft and objects on display. Get up close to Spitfires and Hurricanes; see a portion of the original Wright Brother plane; walk through Concorde, feel dwarfed by the size of a B-52 and stand in awe of Europe’s only SR-71 Blackbird – the fastest jet ever built.

Learn about the role the site played during the First and Second World Wars and hear the stories of those who took part in key battles such as Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain. See live conservation in action and watch restored aircraft take to the skies from the historic airfield.
