Limited Car-Parking at our London Site

From mid-February car parking at our London site will be restricted whilst we re-landscape of the site as part of the Museum's RAF Centenary 2018 Transformation Programme, our preparations for the commemorations of the Centenary of the RAF's foundation in 2018. During this period we are strongly advising those of our visitors not living with a disability to travel to our site via public transport.

The Royal Air Force Museum London offers a fun, enthralling day out for the whole family: and, best of all, admission is free.

With over 100 aircraft on site, nowhere else in London enables you to get close to so many historic and groundbreaking aircraft without paying an entrance.

In addition to this the Museum offers a full calendar of free events and exhibitions that not only bring our world beating collection to life but also educate whilst entertaining visitors. We regularly receive comments from our visitors that they are surprised by the breadth of our collection with many stating that they will have to visit us again as they did not have sufficient time to see everything during the course of their trip.

As one of London's premier tourist attractions reaching us is quick and easy. We're just 10 minutes from Junction 4 of the M1, 30 minutes from Central London by Tube, and a 8 minute bus ride from Colindale Underground Station - or if you prefer a brisk 12 minute walk from Colindale Station.

If you are travelling to us from Mill Hill Broadway Station, please take the 303 Bus from Mill Hill Broadway to Colindale. Alternatively the Museum is a 25 minute walk from Mill Hill Broadway Station. 

So why not drop in and pay us a visit? We promise that the time will fly by.


Currently several SatNav systems have incorrectly indexed our postcode which means that people are being told that they have arrived at their destination whilst they are still on the M1.

As a result we are recommending that rather than typing our postcode into your SatNav system that you input our road name "Grahame Park Way". If this does not work we suggest putting in the postcode NW9 5QW which will direct you to the small industrial estate that is located next to the Museum.
