DUXFORD & USAF CEMETERY PRIVATE TOUR BY CAR
This tour can operate April to October, Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm,  subject to attraction schedules and guide availability.

ITINERARY
Your personal driver-guide will pick-you up from your central London hotel or place of residence at 8am. Then, after an initial fast-route from London, we visit Duxford, a military museum which features many United States connections. It is based on an aerodrome which was built during the First World War and was one of the earliest Royal Air Force stations. During World War II it served as a fighter station.

There are a number of exhibitions in different hangars around the site including Air & Sea, 1940 Operations Room and Battle of Britain. Most impressive is the American Air Museum which contains the finest collection of American combat aircraft outside of the United States including the awesome B52 bomber and an original Flying Fortress.

The tour touches on the story of the most famous Flying Fortress Memphis Belle. In 2019, a documentary The Cold Blue, was released. Directed by Erik Nelson, it featured newly restored footage and outtakes from the summer of 1943 for the documentary ‘Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress’.

Next we take a drive through the English county of Cambridgeshire on our way to visit the Cambridge cemetery where many American airmen who sacrificed their lives are interred. The museum here tells the story of the US ‘Mighty 8th’ Air Force which flew multiple deadly missions from local air bases during World War II. Your driver-guide will suggest appropriate lunch options.
