What is inside the Shuttleworth Collection?

The Collection opened to the public in 1963, with further aircraft and vehicles added over the years. Events that encompass flying displays and vehicle parades draw crowds from all over the world. The Collection’s aircraft and vehicles, as much as possible, are all kept working as intended – it’s where history flies and drives!

The Shuttleworth Collection is a registered charity, self-funded through daily admission and airshows ticket sales.

Our Hangars

Our exhibits are within six large hangars, and the engineering workshop (EW not only to the public due to COVID 19). Follow the links below to explore the themes of each hangar. Please note, as Shuttleworth is home to a living, working collection exhibits sometimes change location. If you are looking for a specific exhibit, please ask our Visitor Centre team.
