The Shuttleworth Collection - where everything flies or drives
The Collection is home to an exciting array of vintage aircraft from the early days of aviation up until the 1950s. We also hold an interesting selection of mostly Edwardian cars and buggies, classic motorcycles and early bicycles.

Airshows run throughout May – October, where you can enjoy seeing aircraft from the Collection take to the skies in addition to visiting aircraft and ground entertainment.

Adjacent to the Collection is an extensive picturesque Regency Swiss Garden, with delightful surprises and vistas revealed at every turn. Recently having benefited from a £3.5m restoration, it shouldn’t be missed!
