Croydon Airport housed the world's first international terminal, from the earliest days of air transport until it closed in 1959. Over 60 years ago Amy Johnson made her famous solo flight to Darwin, Australia from the airport. The Visitor Centre is housed in the control tower and boasts a 'Museum of Aviation' with interactive features and a gift shop.
