The Imperial War Museum Duxford is Europe’s largest air museum. Spend a day wandering through the same hangars and buildings as those who served at RAF Duxford. Get up close to over a century of aviation including Concord, a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, Vulcan, Blackbird, and many many more. See aircraft take to the skies from the airfield that Spitfires first flew or book a flight experience for a once in a lifetime experience. 

Getting to IWM Duxford by train is easy as well with 3 train stations nearby:

  • Whittlesford Parkway
  • Royston
  • Cambridge

There are taxi ranks at Royston and Cambridge, or you can take the 7A bus from Whittlesford Parkway (Monday to Saturday only). For a special event such as the Duxford Flying Legends, you may find free shuttle bus service is provided usually from both Royston and Cambridge and it is well worth checking with the event organisers in advance.
