  • Enjoyed a fabulous day out at Duxford which was over far too quickly. One day is just not enough to do justice to all that is there. Fascinating insight into the history of aviation and the lives of p...  more »
  • As an aircraft engineer and Ex RAF this was a grand day out for me. My wife liked it to but was a little bewildered by the aircraft on display.  more »
  • Absolutely brilliant. Plenty to keep you entertained all day. Get up close to some iconic planes. Staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. Had a great day out. Also easy to find just off motorway junction. A great day out
  • Incredible.. The best 'museum' day me and my kids have ever had.. One of the best things is although it's a big site with some serious aircraft, it has an intimate feel, not least because of the amazing volunteers who help run the place.. I'd never seen a Phantom attack aircraft before (my favourite of the day, is the business..) or a Huey chopper (M.A.S.H anyone?). Concorde, an F fighter (I think..) and amazing bi planes, and lots more.. Was so delighted to see that they had pilots flying some of the planes, for the public on the airfield next to the main site. The skill of the pilots was unbelievable, like aerial martial arts.. Might want to call ahead to check about this part, we saw a lot of planes today. ;-) What else.. Great cafés, fantastic children's play area, at least half a days worth of entertainment, and some crinkly old American dudes who must have been ex pilots.. :-) Such an incredible place, next step for us is the season ticket, only £35 a year for an adult.. Enjoy, and chocks away..
