I visited on a coach trip organised by the local branch of the British Legion so we had a guided tour by the excellent curator, as well as an excellent video presentation. The building itself is worth a visit, as are the gardens. Some of the exhibits cover the history of the building between 1760 when it was built and 1026 when it was acquired by the fairly new RAF.
This was the HQ of Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain, and also for D-Day.
Those exhibits remind us of how much we owe the gallant pilots as well as the controllers, ground crew etc.
Most of the property has now been developed into extremely expensive housing and the developers paid a large part of the cost of the museum (section 106).
