Excellent small museum full of Spitfire and Hurricane memorabilia. It is free to get in and the Manston Cafe is really good and excellent value for money.

Have lunch here every now and again but eat in as we enquired about take away prices and was told it would be £4.10 for a tuna mayo sandwich. No salad but no discounts. Very pricey for what you get

So much to see including a Spitfire and a Hurricane at very close quarters. Masses of memorabilia and a very nice restaurant for just drinks or a meal.

Incredibly interesting place. Admission is free although donations are invited and there is a gift shop to finance the museum. Although I am not a great fan of military history this place is fascinating. I could go back again and again if I were here...More
