Wheelchair access icon

Seething Control Tower Museum is housed in the restored Control Tower of the former RAF Seething. This airfield was home to the 448th Bomb Group of the United States Air Force and was given the identification Station 146.

The museum stands guard over the entrance to Seething Airfield, a popular general aviation airfield which is owned and operated by its own flying club. The current airfield however occupies just a fraction of the space of the original wartime base with just one third of the easterly runway now used, the rest having been given back to farming shortly after the war ended.

Venue Type:

Museum, Archive, Castle or defences

Opening hours

Seething Control Tower Museum is open on the first Sunday of the month, May to October from 1000.
