RAF Coltishall Heritage Centre


Initiated by an enthusiastic group of ex-station personnel and volunteers in June 2021, the RAF Coltishall Heritage Centre highlights the incredible 66 year history of a much loved and respected flying station.

With activities and exhibits for all ages, the displays take visitors on a journey through the station’s role in the Battle of Britain, its association with the Spitfire, Fighter Command and Douglas Bader, up to finding its place in modern warfare, becoming home to the Lightning and Jaguar aircraft of the Cold and Gulf War eras.
