Chapel

St George’s RAF Chapel of Remembrance was built as a memorial to the aircrew who lost their lives flying from the Biggin Hill Sector during the Second World War. It was built in 1951 after a fundraising campaign led by Sir Winston Churchill. The chapel features a reredos, the Book of Remembrance, and 12 stained glass windows design by Sir Hugh Easton.

The original Chapel was destroyed by fire, read more about cause of the fire here:

The chapel is open to visit during museum opening times. Please note, we sometimes run school group workshops in the chapel and St George’s Room on weekday mornings during term times, although you are still welcome to visit both areas as part of your museum tour.
