Take a tour of the Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar, which featured on Inside the Spitfire Factory on More4, with this Spitfire tour experience.
On the tour you will get up close to a number of Spitfires and other vintage aircraft allowing you to see the restoration work being undertaken by the team at the Hangar. Book today
for a guided tour of a very unique hangar, home to a number of Spitfires.
Biggin Hill Airport, Kent
What makes this Spitfire tour unique is that it's a private viewing as the hangar isn't open to the general public. This is your chance to have a good look around this working hangar,
witness the everyday goings on, and see how the talented team works.
You'll be met by one of the Spitfire team on arrival and shown through reception. Somewhat innocuous from the outside, this place is a true treasure trove for aviation fans. As soon as
the door from the office area to the main hangar is opened the view will take your breath away.
What really stands out is that it is all so much more real and somehow interactive than your usual aircraft museum. This is where all the wonderful restoration work is done, where
many of the aircraft are housed after they've been certified airworthy and also where other privately owned examples of Spitfires are hangared.
You can get properly up close to these aircraft, but as it is a working environment you will be
accompanied on your Spitfire tour for your own safety - and also so your host can explain everything there is to know about these majestic winged residents.
