RAF Marham Tornado Gate Guardian

About Us

Welcome to the official website of Royal Air Force Marham

The Marham Wing is one of the largest and busiest in the RAF, operating 4 Squadrons of Tornado GR4 aircraft in the attack and reconnaissance roles. In addition, the Station is home to a number of other key RAF units such as the Tornado Depth and Forward Support Wing, Depth Support Wing, No 3 (RAF) Force Protection Wing, the Tactical Imagery Intelligence Wing, the Tornado Maintenance School, the Tactical Armament Squadron, the Tornado Engineering Development and Investigation Teams and 2620 Squadron Royal Auxiliary Air Force Regiment.

Of course, none of these would function without the vital support teams on the Station that sustain these specialist units. Whilst it is usually the aircraft and flying squadrons that make the news, it is every single man and woman of RAF Marham, conducting all manner of operational tasks at home and worldwide, which are our greatest asset, and they deserve all the credit for Marham's many successes over the years.

This website gives you an opportunity to take a look at the Station as it operates today, including useful links for families and off-duty personnel. However, I also commend to you the history pages that give a flavour of the strong heritage of the Station, of which we are justly proud.

For those of you about to arrive at RAF Marham, you are about to contribute to a vibrant Station that works and plays hard. UK Defence faces many challenges over the next few years and Marham's contribution will be at the cutting edge of the UK's military capability; one that is respected by our allies and feared by our enemies. However, whilst your work at Marham will be challenging and rewarding, the Station and the surrounding area offers a wide choice of activities and attractions for you and your loved ones. The Station is situated in a beautiful part of West Norfolk, between the towns of Downham Market and Swaffham, and the magnificent North Norfolk coast or the Broads are only a short drive away. In addition, the Station has a large, friendly community, with many on-base facilities, clubs and activities to cater for the needs of families and serving personnel alike.

I trust that you enjoy this website, and for those lucky enough to serve here I know that it will allow you to make the most of your tour.
