The Biggin Hill Memorial Museum project has been developed by the Biggin Hill Memorial Museum Trust in partnership with Bromley Council.

Construction works to build the museum, and conserve the Chapel, commence this autumn. The site is expected to reopen in November 2018 as part of the commemorations for 100 years after the end of the First World War, and the celebrations for RAF 100 (the 100th anniversary of the formation of the RAF).

The Biggin Hill Memorial Museum will tell the story of Britain’s most famous fighter station, in particular its role during the Second World War; and provide a sustainable future for St. George’s Chapel of Remembrance, built at Winston Churchill’s instigation in 1951.

The Museum will fulfil a longstanding wish to honour those who served at Biggin Hill during wartime and the community that supported them. There have been many attempts to bring a museum to Biggin Hill over the past thirty years. It is now the first time everything is in place to bring this wish to fruition – funding, land ownership, planning permission and a dedicated team.
