RAF Hendon isn’t just any museum; it is the depository of military aircraft from around the world from the first hot air balloons through the feats of the Wright Brothers right up to modern missiles and the new Eurofighter plane

If you have any interest at all in aviation or The Battle of Britain, then this is the place for you with a wealth of Spitfires, Harriers and a massive Vulcan Bomber.

Visit the newly opened workshop of the pioneering aviator Grahame-White, who founded the aerodrome in 1911, one of my own family relations.  See how aviation came of age and opened up the world to new ways of travel and war.

Experience London life during WW2 and the Battle of Britain and the Blitz bombing of our cities before moving on into the age of the jet engine.

RAF Hendon is a day not to be missed; the only problem is seeing everything and not buying too many goodies from the museum shop be they paintings of Spitfires or Battle of Britain era leather jackets with of course the RAF wings emblazoned on them.
