This Second World War Battle of Britain fighter station has been transformed into an impressive events space, rich in heritage and home to over 100 aircraft – including the iconic Lancaster, Spitfire and Concorde. Whether you’re organising a meeting for 10, a conference for 350 or a gala dinner for 1,000, it’s a location to delight and inspire your guests.
