Watching as a wing was fitted to a Hurricane! Such a privilege and a rare opportunity! Amazing! Our tour guide was so enthusiastic, knowledgable and informative - his passion was infectious. We were not rushed, we were encouraged to ask questions.

We took my father as a treat for his 90th birthday - he loved it!

Roar of the Spitfire
Jul 2021
Absolutely outstanding. A superb experience with an expert as a guide. I was able to actually sit in a Spitfire, something which I believe was due to be phased out. As I had booked online under one of those 'experience' gifts, the 'Sit in a Spit' was honoured as it was part of the 'experience'. However, on the day, anyone wanting to pay to sit in the Spitfire could not, as the rules had changed. Anyway, it was an honour and a privilege to watch the Spitfires at the venue as they soared into the blue sky over Biggin Hill on a warm Summer's day. Fan-flipping-tastic!

Hi Jonathan thanks for taking the time to write in. Most of our guides are volunteers and give of their time freely as they have major connections to WW11. You are right we have phased out the Sit in a Spit option due to Health & Safety Reasons. Really pleased that you enjoyed your time with us perhaps we will see you fort a flight in the future.

Fantastic tour, made you feel very privileged. Austin was a first class guide knowledgeable, friendly and courteous.
the opportunity to see this specialist engineering close up and of course the aircraft.
Not to be missed. It's not rushed either.

Hi Andrew sounds as if you enjoyed yourself and Austin's commentary on the tour today along with his dry wit and his way of keeping the tours buoyant and interesting . Perhaps we will see you in the future for a flight.

Thoroughly enjoyed this. It was an experience for my 81 year old father who is Spitfire mad! He had some difficulty getting into the plane due to his age but he managed it! I only went in for the last part to take photographs. The guide was so patient and informative and I would definitely recommend this to any enthusiast.

Fascinating tour
Sep 2021 • Solo
Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide.
My 96 year old father was able to enjoy the tour with the loan of a wheelchair. He absolutely loved it and was treated with the utmost respect by the small group on the tour and guide, especially when he shared that he was a rear gunner in the RAF at the end of the 2nd World War.
The whole tour was very interesting with the added bonus that we saw 2 spitfires take off.
Thank you to all the staff who made the visit possible.

Sep 2021 • Couples
I went along with my partner who is interested in planes and was not sure it was my thing. However, our tour guide Austin was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, he really brought to life the history of the planes and the people that flew in them. I learnt loads that I didn’t know and it was very fascinating to see how these planes were built and are being preserved. I would highly recommend this tour.
