Still time for a joint visit

For a fascinating day out and a comprehensive view of the Battle of Britain, the Trust recommends combining a trip to the Memorial with a tour of the Kent Battle of Britain Museum just a couple of miles away at Hawkinge.

While the Memorial here at Capel-le-Ferne combines a place of reflection with a hands-on, fully interactive guide to the Battle and the men who fought it, the museum completes the picture with a broad range of fascinating exhibits.

Our friend Dave Brocklehurst's unique collection of Battle of Britain artefacts is the largest and most important in the country and features many personal items that help to tell the amazing story of the Few. Its an ideal curtain-raiser (or follow up!) to a trip to the clifftop Memorial to pay your respects to the men who turned the tide of the second world war.

The opportunity to combine the two venues will soon be coming to an end for 2021, though. While the Memorial stays open throughout the winter, the museum's last day for this year will be Sunday 14 November, after which it will close until next spring.

So, make the most of the next few weeks, fix a date to come and see both attractions and immerse yourself in the story of arguably the most important battle fought by this country in the whole of the 20th century.
