Friends of Duxford IWM

Last summer, I took my Cub pack to the Imperial War Museum Duxford...and had such a fantastic time that I decided to get a family ticket to become a 'Friend of Duxford'. If you visit 4 times a year - you benefit with this rather than pay the day rates!

The best bit of it is that not only is it reasonably local, but also on the main route back that we have to take from Norfolk and Suffolk when we go camping. This is so ideal as we can break up the journey back with just a quick visit - the childrens park is great just on it's own......but there is so much more to see. 

We've just spent the morning there as had afternoon commitments, stayed mainly in Airspace, the interactive hangar, with lots of planes to see and walk on-board. They also had children's activities sponsored by Air-fix. How cool was that for them to go make and paint a plane!

We took a pack lunch as the weather was kind and was treated to a Spitfire Flypast - Icing on the cake!

Can't wait to visit again - so much to see and as it's a functioning airfield there's loads of activity
