If you are interested in Aircraft this is the place to go, they have a very good and varied selection of aircraft, the star is for me is the Vulcan but also many other interesting planes. I also liked the Sir Frank Whittle exhibition.

An amazing collection of aircraft and artefacts within easy reach of Coventry and Warwick - too good an opportunity to miss. Not as big, bold and impressive as, say, Cosford, but well worth the visit if you like things that fly.

Ever wondered what its like to sit on the flight deck of a Vulcan bomber. Well this is the place to go to for just such an experience. A very informative and interesting talk by knowledgeable staff made for a wonderful afternoon.

I went with my father, wasn't free. There are a few concessions but none are free. From what I remember access was OK although outside on the grassy area was uneven. Best bet would be to phone and talk to them
