IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM
This 100-year-old museum has permanent exhibitions on the First and Second World Wars, as well as temporary themed collections covering the likes of Britain’s role in the war in Afghanistan. To commemorate the museum’s centenary this year, a new art installation uses sound and light to tell the story of Duxford Royal Air Force station.
The museum’s hyper-modern Atrium, designed by Foster and Partners, forms the heart of the building and can be booked for banquets of up to 270 people. The 25-metre-high space is complete with a dramatically suspended Spitfire fighter plane, a huge Harrier jet and a German V2 rocket. There are also two refreshed boardrooms, a 200-seat cinema, and a roof terrace covered with vaulted glass, under which 240 delegates can mingle with drinks. Peyton Events provides catering.
