Covid 19 restrictions: good news

With the relaxation of Covid restrictions, we are pleased to confirm

  • The BAe 146 air liner fuselage is open for walk-through tours, weather permitting

  • The Trident air liner fuselage is open for walk ins when staff are available – restricted to one group/party a time. This may be restricted depending on the latest Covid 19 guidelines.

We will do our utmost to keep you all safe, and your support in following our guidelines will go a long way in helping us. The Museum has followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, has a Risk Assessment in place (Click Here) and a process to maintain cleanliness.

The museum is a very airy place with significant space for distancing. You’ll find hand sanitising stations throughout the museum, feel free to use them. There are actually very few surfaces that you need to touch, principally around the toilet areas and the occasional doorway. As you will know masks are mandatory in any shops like our entrance/Aeroshop, so please bring a mask with you and wear one if you can. We also encourage all our visitors to wear facemasks or face shields inside museum buildings. Masks can be removed when outside.

We support the Government Track & Trace scheme, so we will request you to use your phone and the NHS App to scan our QR code. This is at your discretion.

Like many other independent small charities we depend on the generosity of its friends and supporters to help us to continue our work in preserving the de Havilland Heritage.


TripAdvisor Review 20th September 2020

Hidden Gem!

“Really enjoyed my first visit to this museum. Having spent the morning at the RAF museum in Hendon, I noticed that it was only a 15 minute drive to pop over to the De Havilland Aircraft museum so paying a visit was a no brainer. Very interesting exhibits, many of which have cockpit viewings on offer at no extra charge. This particular museum is home to my favourite jetliner, the Comet of which they have 4 on show! 1 being an original mark 1 full length fuselage (minus its wings) 2 are forward fuselage sections which are displayed outside and the final is the empty shell of another forward fuselage section which has been farmed for parts to help with the refurbishment of the Comet 1. Many other interesting aircraft, engines and weapons on display and a very well stocked shop and cafe, ample free parking and accessible toilets. The best part of my visit was meeting some of the lovely stewards who look after the museum. I had several very informative conversations and learnt a few things I didn’t know before. Great bunch a guys and a museum that I will definitely be visiting again and would highly recommend to others.”
