Getting there

Use our free feeder services.  Please note that whilst every effort will be made to run feeder services, unavoidable non-availability of a bus may mean that a service cannot run. If possible, check here the day before the event for changes.


Or use the tube or train.  Northern Line (Edgware Branch) to Colindale, Burnt Oak or Edgware, Northern Line (Mill Hill East Branch) to Mill Hill East, First Capital Connect to Mill Hill.  You can join the free bus services at any of these stations.  [Note that the Jubilee Line will have a replacement bus service on the day between Finchley Road and Wembley].


Or come by service bus 303 to the RAF Museum.


Disabled parking is available at the RAF Museum.


Where to see the buses

Most buses will start and finish their duties at the RAF Museum.  For the other main boarding points on each route, see the route details and the programme.


The most frequently served places will be the following:
  Mill Hill Broadway
  Edgware Station Road
  Mill Hill East Station
  Colindale Station 
  Burnt Oak Broadway
The network of services is shown on the map, and there are numerous points for photography, some listed on our photographers' page.

Bus service timetables

These are set out in the programme and a summary is provided on the route pages.

Static display
There will be a limited static display of buses on the forecourt of the RAF Museum, including buses laying over between services.  Take care to avoid moving buses when viewing and photographing the display.


Refreshments will be available from the RAF Museum restaurants and at numerous locations in the area.  Toilets are available in the museum and at Edgware Shopping Centre (adjacent to the Bus Station).
