Great place to visit if you're mad on planes, especially Spitfires. Their star attraction is the Lancaster but if thats not there then you will get 10% discount on tickets.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit today, Kevin our guide really made the experience memorable. His knowledge was extensive and provided a wealth of information being an ex RAF Pilot himself. Would have no hesitation recommending a visit to RAF Coningsby for anyone interested in WW2 aircraft.
