3. The Shuttleworth Collection

Top 10 ten – Bedfordshire

The Shuttleworth Collection

The Shuttleworth Collection contains aircraft and vehicles from over 100 years of aviation and motoring history and is famous for its regular flying displays in the summer months.
 
All airworthy aircraft in the collection are flown, alongside visiting aircraft from other operators and Services, re-creating flying during the Edwardian period, the First World War, the peacetime years of the twenties and thirties and the Second World War.
 
Modern aircraft are also a regular feature and provide an intriguing contrast with the veteran and vintage types.

The Shuttleworth Collection itself is displayed in eight hangars, which include a workshop hangar giving close up views of restoration and maintenance, a garage displaying cars, motorcycles and other vehicles such as the Clayton and Shuttleworth steam traction engine and a separate coach room for horse drawn carriages.
 
Displays often include the Collection’s veteran and vintage cars, including several which have regularly completed the London to Brighton run.
