Duxford’s Hampton by Hilton Imperial War Museum (IWM) is an opportunity to bring Hilton’s exceptional service to thousands of visitors in a unique setting steeped in wartime history.
The 6-storey hotel, designed in full collaboration with the Imperial War Museum, sits sympathetically alongside the adjacent Airspace Conference Centre, and many aspects of the building have been inspired by this unique historical and cultural environment.
The hotel facilities include a lobby and gym on the ground floor, whilst the communal reception, bar and dining areas are sited on the top floor, with an accompanying outdoor terrace. This elevated, open aspect will allow people to enjoy terrific views across the airfield and fully experience the incredible multiple-day annual air shows.
As an international tourist attraction and Europe’s largest air museum, the Duxford IWM sees approximately 400,000 tourists visit per year to see aircraft take to the skies and get up close to over a century of aviation, with hundreds of aircraft and objects on display.
The Hampton by Hilton Duxford is clearly a key overnight location for both leisure and business travellers alike. In addition to providing services for IWM visitors, and being situated in close proximity to the M11 motorway, the provision of high quality on-site accommodation will allow the Airspace Hangar to fully realise its conferencing potential to the benefit of all stakeholders.
