'London Croydon Airport was Britain’s first major international airport. It played a major role in the development of global air travel after World War One and has a significant place in early 20th century British history. It was the predecessor to London Heathrow Airport and Britain’s busiest airport during the inter war period ... Croydon Airport Visitor Centre is open on the first Sunday of the month, every month throughout the year, apart from New Year’s Day. Entry is by online pre-booking, although we will do our best to accommodate people on the day.'
