RAF Aircraft TourGet up close to eight RAF aircraft, old and new, including a full-size replica of Britain's state of the art stealth combat aircraft as the Royal Air Force's aircraft go on display at Horse Guards Parade. Part of the RAF's centenary celebrations, taking place across the country since April, the free display brings a Typhoon, a Spitfire, a Chinook and a BE2c - the classic First World War bomber biplane - to central London. You'll also get to take part in the interactive STEM zone where you can experience VR simulations and pilot drones. The perfect free weekend activity for families and aircraft enthusiasts.

 

About Horse Guards Parade

Horse Guards Parade is the setting for various military ceremonies throughout the year including the Trooping the Colour which marks the Queen's official birthday. At the heart of Whitehall, it was the traditional entrance to the Royal Palaces and is still guarded by mounted sentries from the Queen's Household Cavalry. More about Horse Guards Parade
