Special Open Day - Open House London

22.09.18 - Croydon Airport Visitor Centre

The former London Croydon Airport (now Airport House) is one of the Borough’s most iconic landmarks and we’re delighted to have the building open to the public as part of Open House London. The Open Day is hosted by volunteers from the Historic Croydon Airport Trust.

The Open Day will provide guided tours through the Airport Booking Hall and the building up to the world’s oldest Air Traffic Control Tower where the museum is located. The micro- museum displays artefacts, photos and Art Deco posters that chart the history of Britain's first airport through the 1920’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. 

Croydon Airport Visitor Centre is an award winning bijou museum. Located in the magnificent Grade II* (two star) listed Airport House, it was formerly the UK’s first major international airport. Expanded from the original World War I airfield for passenger use it was also a Battle of Britain airfield during World War II. It was where Amy Johnson made her record-breaking flights and where Britain established it's first international air routes.
