Take a 15 minute flight in a vintage open cockpit aircraft at a former RAF fighter airfield. Steeped in history, this location in Duxford saw plenty of action during the Battle of Britain. It is now home to Europe's premier aviation museum where you can discover an outstanding collection of over 150 historic aircraft from Biplanes and Spitfires to Concords, with free entry. Most Tiger Moths in Britain are privately owned so revel in the rare chance of a flight in one of these fabulous planes. Throw in a leather flying jacket, goggles and a helmet and you are ready for a ride of pure nostalgia. High above the bustle of modern life it will be easy to imagine you've time travelled back to the 1930s. To add to this amazing experience you will be given the chance to try flying the vintage beauty yourself.
