The Imperial War Museum uses Duxford Airfield, Cambridgeshire, a former Battle of Britain fighter station, to house the items that it does not have room for in London. Duxford Airfield is situated beside the intersection of the M11 with the A505 at Junction 10, south of Cambridge. It has on display numerous aircraft as well as some military vehicles, tank guns and artillery. Its many attractions include Concorde 101, midget submarines, a 'hi-tech simulator capsule', a children's adventure playground, souvenir shops, picnic areas and a licensed restaurant.
Maintenance of the vehicles in the collection is undertaken by the vehicle wing of the Duxford Aviation Society. There are no restrictions on taking photographs of the exhibits.
Each year, in the summer, a military vehicle rally is held at the airfield which attracts large numbers of private military vehicles. It is also an opportunity to see at many of the museum’s own tank on the move.
