Finding Us

RAF Air Defence Radar Museum, Birds Lane, Neatishead, Norfolk NR12 8YB

The Radar Museum is located on the northern side of the Norfolk Broads.  We are signposted from Wroxham (10 minutes by car) and Horning (an easy walk of 10 minutes) or an easy drive from Norwich (25 minutes) .

If arriving by boat, you can moor at Horning.

Bicycle Hire is available at Wroxham (near the Tourist Information Centre) or there is a local Wroxham Taxi Service ( 01603 782925).

Our car park is large enough to host cars, coaches or mini buses. We have a grassed outdoor eating area, a small grassed play area and shady parking for those hot summer days if you are bringing your dog (sorry no dogs are permitted inside the Museum*). There is also a small dog kennel to use should you wish to park your dog whilst you visit us. Guide dogs are of course accepted inside the museum.

* Except Guide Dogs.


The Museum has been access audited by Access North Norfolk Action and changes have been made to ensure that as many people as possible can enjoy their visit.

However the nature of the military building, which was constructed in 1942, does mean that access to all areas is not always possible for those using wheelchairs. Click here to view the Museum Accessibility.


The museum has twenty-five exhibition rooms and over 10,000 display items.
