There is plenty for all ages to see and do. You will need at least half a day to see the whole site as there is a lot to see! It was exceptionally clean and had lots of easy to read displays, videos and interactive exhibits. The cafe was too pricey (mince pie £2.95!) although what we had was good... More

I havent had time to see everything, you will need more than one day to appreciate the "up close" experience of the engineering that still is impressive today. enjoyable for all ages, probably more thought provoking for some.

I have loved visiting Duxford since I can't remember when. An amazing site and stunning collection of aircraft. Truly a fantastic day out. Could get lost for hours wondering round the various exhibits and aircraft on display. A superb collection.

You don't have to be an aircraft geek to enjoy this place. It has a great selection of aircraft from all ages. From byplanes to concorde, seaplanes to the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, Spitfires, Lancaster, B52........ But take your walking boots!

A fantastic day out for those who are interested in Aviation or WW History. Several buildings to visit, ensure you leave enough time to see everything. The main building with Concorde, a Vulcan bomber and lots more aircraft can take a few hours on its own with interactive displays for children & adults.

What a fantastic place to go to, 8 separate hangers each with a different theme. It would take more than a day to go round all of them. We visited not the American Air Museum, not Battle of Britain and not Air Space. So much to see and do. A fabulous day out (or more).

Visited here for the day on a Monday, was great to walk around and see so much history, it wasn't very busy so managed to get around and see everything, we did have a quick bite to eat and although the staff were lovely and friendly the price was pretty high we thought, a sausage roll is £3.20 and it's...
