The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre

See these magnificent WWII aircraft including Spitfires, Hurricanes and a Lancaster Bomber at close quarters, and observe skilled and dedicated technicians working to maintain them in flying order at the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre.

Visitors are led on a guided tour around the BBMF hangar by knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteer guides, who in many cases, have first hand experience of the aircraft. They are keen to ensure that the public appreciate this living tribute to the sacrifices made by RAF aircrew and ground crew during the Second World War.

A well stocked shop offers a range of aviation gifts, a permanent exhibition gallery exploring Lincolnshire's links with the RAF plus regular programme of temporary exhibitions.

There's also a small picnic area, hot and cold drinks available.
