    Personally I think this is the best military museum I've visited in Britain; there is so much to do & see here, with friendly & helpful staff, and excellent facilities. Not to be missed!

    If you visit in a week prior to airshows you can watch the practice flights. Sometimes better than the show! But the shows are worth a visit also. One of the best collections in the World.

    The best place to see old warbirds fly...airshows here are not to be missed especially if you like B-17 Flying Fortresses, Spitfires, Hurricanes and Lancasters

    Fantastic day out, facilities and exhibits are some of the best I have seen.

    Expensive, but with it for a day out. All children under 16 are free which is good for families!

    Lots of walking for young children-saw a family with scooters today. Brilliant idea! Also food is poor so bring a picnic-there's an M&S at a nearby garage (Sawston) with a good sandwich etc selection.

    Use the park and ride. No hassle getting in or out. Brilliant day well worth the money.

    Excellent place to visit, make sure you get there early and can spend the whole day there. It is a huge site.

    Aerospace museum/hanger currently used due to damaged roof caused by the high winds.

    Take a pack-up the Mess restaurant charges a small fortune. £7.10 for a panini and bottle of Drench squash!

    Where there is a show, arrive before 9:30 to avoid the queues. Also go to the car before the show is officially over, to avoid loosing another 1-2 hours due to the traffic.

    Great new exhibits to see even when no air show on (you may be lucky to catch some though). Food and drink a bit expensive though.

    Go to the American hanger first and work your way back to avoid the crowds.

    One of the best military museums I've been in UK so far. The airshow is something special, to see those warbirds flying and hearing them in the smell of gasoline, that's entirely another story!

    Never get tired of Duxford. Well presented, great staff and exhibits, added bonus of seeing a Spitfire practice!

    Ian Thompson · June 10, 2012

    Bring your own food and use the eating space in Hangar 1. Food at the restaurant is ridiculously expensive!

    Home to the only member of the Blackbird family outside the United States. SR-71A, serial number 61-7962, set a flight altitude record of 85,069 feet in July 1976.
