The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre is based at RAF Coningsby. The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight operates a Lancaster, five Spitfires, two Hurricanes, two Chipmunks, and a Dakota. In 1986, under a unique arrangement between Lincolnshire County Council and the Royal Air Force, it became possible to view these historic aircraft at their base at RAF Coningsby.

These aircraft are no museum pieces they are all still flying and can be seen at a variety of air shows in the summer months.

Since 1986, the Visitor Centre has welcomed over 300,000 people, all of whom have received a guided tour.

You can purchase gifts from the extensive range of giftware available in our shop. This includes framed pictures, prints, books, videos, computer software, porcelain mugs, pewter ware, model aircraft, sweatshirts, and much more.

The Visitor Centre is also home to the BBMF permanent gallery and temporary exhibition area. Entrance to this area is free.

Visitors may purchase tickets for a guided tour of the BBMF hangar from the shop. Entrance to the hangar is by guided tour only. .
