Nicely located on approach to Shoreham Beach area. Be an anorak light aircraft spotter ( even filming at times ) and enjoy a coffee break

Haven't been to the Shoreham Airport for a while and I had forgotten how interesting the complex is, it is our only reminder of aviation from the early days, try to visit to save it all for love of flight.
