Information About RAF Honington

Royal Air Force Honington has a history of being a major flying base that dates back to the 1930s but which today is the RAF’s main centre of Force Protection.

RAF Honington is a busy operational station, situated midway between the main towns of Bury St Edmunds to the South and Thetford in Norfolk to the North. The proximity of the main A14 road into East Anglia makes Honingtons’ rural location very accessible. The station (within the wire) provides a selection of amenities; a swimming pool and a well-equipped gymnasium, learning centre and a hairdresser.

Outside the wire you will find the Families Bar, Post Office Stores, purpose built Childcare Centre, Service Church, Fish & Chip takeaway, Chinese takeaway, Hairdressers and The Fox pub. Suffolk County Council also provide a mobile library service (contact the HIVE for up to date timetable). The Community Centre provides a focal point for the local community with various activities and sessions being hosted, it also accommodates the Coffee Shop and HIVE Information Office.
