Croydon Airport Visitor Centre


Croydon Airport Visitor Centre is a volunteer led tourist attraction. Exhibition space includes displays located in the world's oldest Air Traffic Control Tower in Airport House and the Grade II listed terminal building. Features include exhibits and visual images charting the history of Croydon Airport from World War One through to the golden age of flying in the 1920s and 30s, the Battle of Britain in 1940 and up to the airport's closure in 1959. Croydon Airport saw some notable events in aviation and travel history: for example, Amy Johnson set off from Croydon for her record breaking solo flight to Australia in 1930.
