Went Back Holiday Monday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely place and lovely staff. Really interesting and full of surprises. Would recommend and such a good price for an attraction. On small estate with lots of little shops/units. Definitely a hidden gem

Friendly and informative volunteers made for a great visit. It is a place that I will return. My son loved climbing in and out of the planes and chatting to the staff and asked if we can go back in the future.

Firstly I think that this is a real gem of an attraction, could easily spend 4/5 hours in there if your really into your aircraft and RAF history like me. The old boys who work there are really nice and really knowledgeable. Some good donations...More
