Hotels in Duxford

Today, the pictorial Cambridgeshire village of Duxford is best-known for being the home of the Imperial War Museum Duxford, which was founded in 1977 and is the largest aviation exhibition in the country. The museum is at the former Duxford Aerodrome, which played a strategic role in the Battle of Britain, when it housed dozens of aircraft and intercepted many Luftwaffe planes.

Originally comprising two parishes, Duxford has existed for more than 1, 000 years, and is overlooked by the quaint 13th-century St Peter's Church.

The museum

If you're interested in finding out more about the two world wars and the RAF, there's probably nowhere more appropriate than the Imperial War Museum Duxford. Here, you can learn about the history of RAF Duxford from its founding in 1918 to its closure in 1961, and observe former RAF aircraft and a special Land Warfare exhibition showcasing the impact of technology in war.

You might also be interested in visiting the American Air Museum, which commemorates the 30, 000 American soldiers who flew from British air bases and sacrificed their lives in the Second World War, as well as those who fought in parts of Africa and Asia in other wars. In addition, you can spend some time in the reconstructed 1940 Operations Room, where RAF staff monitored fighter aircraft to help them steer clear of the Luftwaffe, who greatly outnumbered the British forces.

Other places to visit in the local area:

See Grade I listed St John's Church, which dates back to the 12th century, or visit the Grade II listed Duxford Chapel, which is more than 600 years old. Duxford is also just a nine-mile journey from the city of Cambridge, which is revered for its outstanding 13th-century university, world-class Fitzwilliam Museum art collection, and the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences.
