Bringing passion into the world of aviation and military art – it’s part of our DNA!
For more than 25 years Aces High has been a leading name in the world of aviation and military art. Respected not only for the quality of our service, but also for the wide and varied range of products – a feature that stems from our original yet ambitious desire to champion only the very best in the genre. Happily, along the way, the Advertising Standards Authority concluded that Aces High has become ‘the world’s foremost specialists in aviation and military art’.

Throughout our journey we’ve been fortunate to meet many wonderful people: loyal collectors, many of the world’s finest artists but, perhaps more importantly, it has enabled us to share the company of hundreds of wonderful veterans, past and present.

Be prepared for a warm welcome – we pride ourselves on it
Enter the door to an Aces High Gallery and you’ll be greeted by an unforgettable sight. In front of you is a huge range of affordable items sitting side-by-side with wonderful original artwork.
Our home gallery, host to frequent yet unique signing events with veterans, is situated in the historic market town of Wendover nestling beneath the beautiful Chiltern Hills, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, within easy reach of London. Many of the items on sale and display here have been created by our on-site framing studio, a place where old-fashioned craftsmanship co-exists with the latest technology. Originality and quality aren’t just words to our team here – they’re an obsession.
Our second gallery is in France at the very centre of Ste-Mère-Église famed for its role during the US Airborne landings on D-Day. Many of the pieces on sale here, whether it’s an inexpensive post card or poster or a stunning original painting, relate to the Normandy landings of June 1944 and a visit to the gallery is a ‘must’ for anyone doing a tour of the D-Day beaches.

Our third ‘gallery’ is mobile - we hold temporary exhibitions at many of the world’s leading military and aviation shows where you’ll find a selection of our finest and affordable pieces. The surroundings may indeed be temporary but the warmth of our welcome is guaranteed to be everlasting.
