The Shuttleworth Collection Bedfordshire


You'll find the largest collection of horse-drawn carriages in Europe at the Stockwood Discovery Centre and over a hundred years of aviation history and aircraft displays at The Shuttleworth Collection. Here you’ll find vintage aircraft from the 1900s as well as penny-farthings and Edwardian vehicles. They host regular events throughout the year here, so you’ll also be able to see flying displays and vehicle parades.
