Hangar 42 Visitor Centre

Hangar 42 is located at Blackpool Airport, Lancashire.  Constructed in 1939 for the RAF at the outbreak of WW2, Hangar 42 was home to various RAF and Polish Squadrons, operating night fighter cover for Preston and Merseyside Docklands.

Hangar 42 has been relatively untouched since 1945 and retains many original features. The ancillary rooms at the side of the building have been cleared and restored with period features and furniture.

The Visitor Centre has been developed to ensure that the sights, sounds and equipment of the era are brought back to life to give our visitors a valuable insight to the realities of fighting on the Ground, as well as in the Air during the dark years of WW2.

The Hangar has ample space for filming and has access to water, power and facilities such as toilets and catering, with secure parking. This is a secure site, so filming can be completed away from the Public and equipment is safe within the Hangar. Competitive hire rates for both TV and Film productions.
