About the Gatwick Aviation Museum

A modest-sized museum with a decent collection of ex-military aircraft and a lot of engines and ephemera on display.

A second room has a history of Gatwick Airport and some of the defunct airlines that used to fly out of it.

The main attraction for many will be the guided tour of the Avro Shackleton by a former flight navigator who tells you how they used to carry out cold-war surveillance and practice submarine attacks.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
