Hendon Kitchen


Weather permitting, we would ask that as many people utilise our outdoor seating as much as possible but, should the weather not allow, the café has been set up to allow for people to eat in.

We politely ask that no tables or chairs are repositioned and that a 2-metre rule is respected. Please ask any of our team members for support or guidance should you need help.

Hendon Kitchen is located between the Museum’s First World War in the Air Exhibition in Hangar 2 and the RAF in An Age of Uncertainty exhibition in Hangar 6.
