Special ‘Battle of Britain Icon’ Tours for 2023

To celebrate the new year we’re rolling out a series of special themed tours for 2023. Each tour will have a different theme and will delve deeper into specific aircraft, pivotal periods in history or areas of interest.

We’re kicking the series off with ‘Icons of the Battle of Britain’ aircraft tour which will focus on three iconic aircraft – the Spitfire Mk1, Hurricane and the Messerschmitt 109E.

We’re lucky to have examples of all these aircraft based here currently :

This Battle of Britain tour is a unique opportunity to compare and contrast the different characteristics of each aircraft, how they came into production and the role they played in the Battle of Britain.

Tickets for our first ‘Icons of the Battle of Britain’ Tour can be purchased here (select 5th March) or call us for more details.

We plan to roll out additional dates throughout the year along with other Special Spitfire Factory themed tours such as WWII USA Aircraft and Vehicles, Spitfire Armament and the History of Biggin Hill.
