Learn about RAF Kenley’s significant Battle of Britain history and hear about the people that served at Kenley and how the Kenley Revival Project have conserved and preserved the site.

The event is outdoors and therefore suitable clothing must be worn. Surfaces may be uneven and slippery. The route, which is around two miles long, will be a mixture of surfaced path and grass and therefore suitable footwear must be worn.

There will be two time slots for this tour: 10.30am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-3.30pm.
