The Shoreham Aircraft Museum was founded in 1978 by local enthusiasts, whose passion for the Battle of Britain period resulted in the establishment of a permanent display in 1988. The official opening was attended by no less than 15 former Battle of Britain pilots. The Museum serves as a lasting tribute to all those airmen who fought in the skies over southern England during World War II. All the proceeds are used for recovery and preservation of artefacts. Any remaining funds are donated to the RAF Guinea Pig Club, East Grinstead, a charitable organisation for severely burnt Allied airmen of Word War II, and one with which we are proud to have had a long association. The museum has a charming tea room, serving home-made cakes and refreshments. There is also a gallery displaying a range of prints by renowned aviation artist, Geoff Nutkins.
The museum is open every Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday from Easter until the end of October. Opening hours: 1000-1700 (last entry 4.30pm). As a small token of thanks, any serving member of H.M. Armed Forces visiting the Museum who shows a valid I.D. at the door will be granted free entry to the Museum. Parties are welcome at any time by prior arrangement (minimum number 20).
