Details for Yorkshire Air Museum

The Yorkshire Air Museum is a fascinating visitor attraction, covering all aspects of World War II in an original and authentic setting. The surrounding gardens and souvenir shop are well worth visiting and there is a unique reconstruction of a NAAFI type restaurant.  

The Yorkshire Air Museum is the largest independent air museum in Britain and is also the location of The Allied Air Forces Memorial. Situated in a 20 acre parkland on the former World War II RAF Bomber Command Station at Elvington near the City of York, it is the largest and most original WWII station open to the public. It was also the only base used by the French heavy bomber squadrons during the war and today includes award winning gardens, a large NAAFI style restaurant and shop, plus over 15 top class exhibitions, a large range of military vehicles and 50 historic aircraft, many of which are in working order. Head of the Royal Air Force, Air Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton KCB BSc FRAeS RAF, is Vice President of the Museum & Memorial.
