 Welcome to Shuttleworth, at Old Warden in Bedfordshire. The Collection of aircraft and cars was started by Richard Ormonde Shuttleworth, a passionate racer and pilot. Based in the aerodrome, the Collection contains some of last airworthy aircraft of their type remaining anywhere in the world.

Vintage aircraft: 1909-1950s
Vehicles: mostly Edwardian, early dogcarts and 1930s-1940s cars
Motorcycles, penny farthings and a 1904 Aurora
Agricultural exhibits: working Chaff Cutter, living van and tractors
The Collection opened to the public in 1963, and further aircraft and vehicles have been added over the years. Events that encompass flying displays and vehicle parades draw crowds from all over the world. The Collection’s aircraft and vehicles, as much as possible, are all kept working as intended – it’s where history flies and drives!
