Biggin Hill, Kent, UK. 24 January, 2019. Following a 16-month construction project, the brand new Biggin Hill Memorial Museum will open its doors to visitors for the first time on 2 February 2019, offering the chance to experience the inspirational history of Britain’s most famous airfield. Major funding for the project came from the National Lottery and Central Government. RAF Biggin Hill played a pivotal role in the Second World War. Part of a chain of airfields that protected the capital, it was memorably described by Churchill as ‘the strongest link’. An AV presentation illustrates the airfield scramble during WW2.
