A fantastic air museum, there are so many aircraft, outside and even more housed in hangars. There are many interesting aircraft here including a replica of Lee Richards annular biplane. My Husband is not really into aircraft but even he was fascinated and took many photographs, this is very unlike him! We spent a lovely few hours looking around, enjoyed... More

We enjoyed our visit to the museum. Specially the interesting facts that we were told by one of the staff about one of the planes. I learnt a lot today! :)

A nice display of aircraft and Bomber Command equipment in an RAF ambience and with helpful staff. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

It is little known that one of the Vulcan bombers is housed here. It is a small air museum but worth visiting.

I quite liked the toor but I don't think the toor was long enough ore you didn't get to sit in the seats. The man who did it was a friendly chap I think it could cost a little,cheaper I liked it.

Took my 90 year old father and it was very absorbing, spent most of the day, but could have taken longer, so much to see, most classics from when Britain had the lead in the industry. Very helpful volunteers and even able to go into the Vulcan cockpit, and meet a retired flight engineer giving first hand experiences, to the... More
