Thorpe Camp Visitor Centre and its collection

Thorpe Camp Visitor Centre

The Thorpe Camp Visitor Centre was formerly No. 1 Communal Site, Royal Air Force Woodhall Spa, a typical World War II bomber airfield and home to four bomber squadrons, including 617, the famous Dambusters Squadron. The site, which comprises the airmen's dining rooms, NAAFI building and various ablution and ration stores buildings, was saved from demolition in 1988 with the formation of the Thorpe Camp Preservation Group. The Group has restored the war-time buildings and created a visitor centre telling the story of the airfield, the squadrons based there and of civilian life in Lincolnshire during World War II.

    A brilliant place to visit & not expensive to enter. Great for kids to learn about WW2. Great NAAFI (cafe)& souvenir shop. All the volunteers are really helpful & courteous. Well worth a visit if you're staying in the vicinity
