I went to visit Croydon Airport recently with a family member who flew from Croydon to Guernsey in the 1950s. The tour guide was excellent and was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the history of the airport and the early travel requirements.

Want to volunteer at Croydon Airport Visitor Centre?

Volunteering is important to the Croydon Airport Visitor Centre (CAVC) and helps the local community.  We have been running the CAVC with a team of volunteers since it opened in 2001 and welcome new volunteers to join our friendly team. The CAVC is a very popular independent museum that tells the story of air travel. The museum is located in the Air Traffic Control Tower in Airport House Business Centre.

There are lots of reasons to volunteer from helping others, giving something back, bolstering your CV or just having fun. If you can help out 7 to 8 days a year at the Croydon Airport Visitor Centre, you could see your volunteer career take off!
