In the Tangmere Hall you will find many exhibits illustrating the history of Tangmere from 1917 to 1970.

The Hall also contains a comprehensive exhibition devoted to the equipment and activities of the special SOE agents and the Lysander pilots who flew them to and from occupied Europe from Tangmere.

There are also special sections on the Royal Flying Corps – the forerunner of the RAF – a small art gallery containing a number of fine original aviation paintings, a section on the radio equipment used in the Second World War and displays of medals and uniforms from all periods of Tangmere’s history.
