About the experience

For military aviation enthusiasts everywhere, we have the Real McCoy with this exclusive VIP Spitfire Tour at the Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar. This spacious and airy hangar hosts a superb assortment of Spitfires and other iconic vintage aircraft. Better still, this is a private tour, as the hangar is not open to the general public - so you can really experience what goes on in a working hangar such as this one, and take it all in. The Spitfire team will welcome you on arrival at the hangar reception. And it’s once you step through the door from reception to the hangar itself that you suddenly take in what there is to see - and for any Spitfire lovers, there’s a veritable feast for the senses! As the loving restoration work goes on at the hangar, it means that it feels more interactive than any equivalent aircraft museum you’ll have visited before - in fact, we’d say that Biggin Hill sets the gold standard, as you have the chance to get up close to these iconic aircraft, and to take in the smell and sight of the leather and oil. And when the planes are fully restored and certified as airworthy, these, along with several other privately owned Spitfires - are kept here. Your host will accompany you on the tour to ensure you can be guided around the working hangar safely, and also tell you all the fascinating facts there are to know about these Spitfires. There are only a certain number left that are still considered airworthy, so this is a real privilege. This would make an ideal gift idea for a Spitfire fan, and at under £50 it’s fantastic value too.
