Croydon Airport museum cleared for takeoff again in September
Next month, the Croydon Airport Visitor Centre once again opens its doors to those interested in local history and aviation.
Located in the former terminal buildings on Purley Way in Croydon, the permanent exhibition is a popular destination for those who want to discover the part Croydon played in aviation history.
With the world's oldest control tower and the birthplace of air traffic control, the museum is the number one destination for things to do in Croydon according to Trip Advisor.
Discover relics from London's original airport, including advertising posters, maps, timetables, air traffic control devices, aircraft furniture and historic photos.
The Croydon Airport Visitor Centre is usually open on the first Sunday of the month from around 10am to late afternoon. Due to COVID19 restrictions, timed-entry slots have now been introduced to enable safer visits through reduced numbers and social distancing. This does mean you will need to reserve a slot online instead of just turning up, as has been the case until now.
Bookings for the first opening on Sunday 6 September will be possible via Eventbrite with tickets being made available online very soon.
The Aiport Visitor Centre is opposite Collanades with Costa coffee, Pizza Hut and other fast food outlets, so you can refuel the family after your visit. You also have the Aiport House hotel (and Hilton) nearby if you fancy a grander afternoon tea or meal. Please check with all venues directly to find the latest opening arrangements.
