Event description

Description

Take a 2 mile guided tour with the Kenley Revival Project Manager to learn about RAF Kenley's significant Battle of Britain history as part of London History Day.

Hear about the conservation, preservation and restoration of one of Britain's finest examples of Impermanent Architecture.

Discover the features that were uncovered during our community archaeology dig and find out how we managed to relocate a war memorial complete with a time capsule.

The event is outdoors and therefore suitable clothing must be worn. Surfaces may be uneven and slippery. The route will be a mixture of surfaced path and grass and therefore suitable footwear must be worn. The length of the route is approx. 2 miles.

There is no parking available onsite and we would encourage you to travel by public transport (details can be found here). Limited parking is available on Hayes Lane which is closest to the RAF Kenley Tribute where the walk will commence.

There are no toilet or refreshment facilities available.

Always remember that Kenley is an active airfield for gliders, so for your safety remain outside of the yellow line at all times.

Spaces are limited so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.

The Kenley Revival Project is partnership project between the City of London Corporation, Kenley Airfield Friends Group and Historic England. It has been supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to protect the heritage of the most intact fighter airfield from World War II.
