The Lancaster experience was really informative. The guide gave a great talk and going inside the aircraft was amazing. Highly recommend. The Battle of Britain ops room was also a superb experience... more »
Great place to spend a day. Very educational and there are so many displays to look at. It is all very well put together and very clean. You can expect to spend at least 3 hours here to see it all, but likely even longer. There are 2 cafes and 1 restaurant. The restaurant's food is pretty good. They have a great gift shop as well.
Absolutely love this place! Incredible wealth of knowledge, amazing vehicles and demonstrations. The Battle of Britain show was incredible! I would definitely recommend visiting Duxford. It's an amazing day out with so much to see. Truly fascinating.
