Welcome to the Museum of RAF Firefighting.


The Museum is dedicated to telling the story of military firefighting with a particular emphasis on the Royal Air Force.

The collection also includes exhibits from the Royal Navy and the Army. The Defence Fire services and MOD contract fire Services.

We cannot tell the story of military firefighting without telling the story of fire fighting in general. The collection therefore has exhibits from civilian fire services both from home and abroad.

It is thought to be the largest collection of fire memorabilia in the country and we believe we have the largest collection of ex military fire engines in the world on display in a single location.

Due to the current Covid-19 situation the decision has been made to temporarily close the Museum to visitors.

For further updates follow us on facebook and twitter.

We hope this is a temporary measure. 

Get in Touch.
