Bicester Heritage has four beautifully appointed, comfortable Crew Rooms for overnight use by visitors to the historic former RAF site.
If visiting one of the Bicester Heritage specialist businesses, then why not book an evening in one of the four ‘New York loft’ with-a-British-twist style rooms. Featuring exposed glazed brickwork, heavy duty steel supporting beams, high ceilings, sumptuous fabrics and soft velvet furnishings these spaces provide the perfect base from which to collect your car, use the test track facility, visit friends or tour this unique location as part of an event.
Located to the rear of Building 82 – The Power House, the Crew Rooms are nestled in what used to be the power generation and pump house, distributing water and electricity around the former RAF Bicester WW2 bomber training station. This 1926 building initially underwent restorative works in 2014, with the majority of the red brick structure now home to Robert Glover Ltd, a sports, touring and competition motor car dealer. In 2013 Building 82 became the home of Alan Turing’s computer Christopher, whilst the blockbuster film The Imitation Game was filmed at Bicester Heritage. The accommodation was completed mid-2015, providing a unique, exciting and cosy base from which to discover the Technical Site.
Expect a club feel with hints of Art Deco and nods to the site’s prolific RAF heritage (each room is named after a distinguished RAF Station Commander). In Bicester Heritage’s opinion this combination sits perfectly with the war-time vernacular, not to mention the astonishing four wheeled machinery that is often found sitting outside the front door.
