RAF Henlow is in Bedfordshire and is located about 6 miles north of Hitchin on the A600 Bedford Road and has easy access from the A1 and the M1 roads. Nearest railway stations are Hitchin or Arlesey.
Code for GPS is SG16 6DN. If coming via the A1 come off at junction 10 near Baldock, (end of motorway section) and turn towards Shefford along the A507. Follow this road until you have gone over the railway bridge after about 3 miles, and at the next roundabout (Junction A507/B659), after about 3/4 mile, turn left. This will bring you past the airfield on your right and into the built up area and as you wait at the traffic lights, you will see a sign which says “RAF Henlow All Visitors”. Park there, cross to the guardroom to get a pass then back to your car and enter through the barrier in the corner of the car park. The museum is the first building inside the gate on the left with a Type 7 Radar Scanner in front. Just park opposite and come in.
