Full description
This is a great day out for anyone with an appreciation for military history and airplanes. Your guide will pick you up at your hotel or at a train/tube station in the morning. Enjoy complimentary drinks and entrance fees on this full-day tour of the Royal Air Force Museum at Hendon. RAF Hendon houses planes from around the world, dating from over 100 years ago right up to the present day Eurofighter, with special emphasis on the RAF. Learn all about the Battle of Britain and experience an air raid over London. See the heroics of the early aviation pioneers and learn from your guide’s personal experience, as the workshop of one of his relatives is part of the tour. Your visit to Hendon can be as long or short as you'd like it to be. There’s certainly more to see than is possible to cover in a single day.

Everything went great. Pick up at the hotel, then take the subway to the museum. Our guide, Nigel, was just awesome. Very friendly and knew a lot to tell! The museum was very impressive: certainly go again. Next year is the 100th anniversary. Because of this occasion, mighty buildings are being built.
