Trip to Bentley Priory Museum
Come along on Saturday 26th May for a trip to Bentley Priory Museum! About the museum Bentley Priory is an 18th century stately home and deer park in Stanmore, north London. It was originally a 12th century medieval priory of Augustinian Canons. In 1775, Sir John Soane designed a large mansion house, just north of the original priory, called Bentley Priory for the businessman James Duberley. The word Bentley is through to derive from 'beonet', a kind of coarse grass. Since then the house has been lived in by various people, been used as a hotel and a girls school, before being acquired by the Royal Air Force in 1926. In WW2, Bentley Priory was the headquarters of the RAF Fighter Command and it remained in the hands of the RAF until 2008. Since 2008, it has been a museum and memorial to those who served in the RAF. The visit should last about 2 hours. When we arrive, we will be having a guided tour and then you can look around the museum and grounds on your own. Entry cost is £8 per person for Full Members and £10 per person for everyone else (payable on the day). Go to to become a Full Member Afterwards we will head to the museum café from 4pm for a chat over a drink. Please note that Stanmore is in Zone 5, so please make sure your have money on your Oystercard to get you there. The museum is a 10 minute bus ride from the station. Please note, we only wait outside the station for 10 minutes after the advertised meeting time, so please be early or on time. If you can't see us outside the station, please text.
