The Shoreham Aircraft Museum

The Shoreham Aircraft Museum

Introduction

The Shoreham Aircraft Museum was found in 1978 by local enthusiasts, whose enthusiasm for the Battle of Britain period resulted in the organization of a permanent display in 1988.

The Museum houses hundreds of aviation remnants excavated by the group over many years from crashed British and German aircraft, as well as items which have been benevolently donated. In addition, there is a fine compilation of flying helmets, uniforms and insignia. This, along with a wide-ranging display of Home Front memorabilia, ensures a visit to the museum is both pleasurable and educational.

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, one of the Museum's founders.

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.

Opening hours: (please check before visiting)

The museum is open every Sunday from Easter until the end of September.

10.00am - 5.00pm

Parties are welcome at any time by prior arrangement

(minimum number 20).

Tea Room

If you feel in need of some refreshments during your visit, you only have to head for our Tea Room. The Tea Room is a popular watering hole for the many ramblers and cyclists who pass through the village. We are also listed in the Cyclists' Touring Club guide. We serve tea, coffee and soft drinks, along with a range of homemade scones, cakes and pastries, all at very reasonable prices. If the weather is fine you can also take advantage of our Tea Garden. Opening times are the same as those for the Museum itself, but you can of course visit the Tea Room without visiting the Museum.
