Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Bentley Priory Museum

Bentley Priory Museum tells the fascinating story of the beautiful Grade 2* listed country house, focussing on its role as Headquarters Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain. We explain how technology, leadership and courage forged victory allowing Britain’s darkest hour to also be her Finest Hour. We tell the story of ‘The One’– Air Chief Marshal Hugh Dowding, ‘the Few’ who took to air to defend our skies and ‘the Many’ without whose tireless work on the ground victory would not have been possible.
A typical museum visit takes 2-2 ½ hours, we look forward to welcoming you to Bentley Priory and hope the information below will help you plan your visit.
