Fantastic value for money. We were looking for something reasonably priced to do it on a rainy bank holiday and found this little gem. At £15 for a family ticket, you can’t get a single ticket for that price at other places. The entrance looks...More

This "Attraction" is like visiting a landfill site for sad a beaten up aircraft. The planes are rammed into a small hanger and wooden buildings with little to no information about their services in the war. The exhibits that are on the show have clearly...More

If you like planes, this is a 5 star review. If you don't it's a 3 star review. The museum is a remnant of an old airbase, with some original buildings used to house aircraft in various condition. The buildings are old and not kept...More

spent a rainy March day here, from the friendly lady selling the tickets to the amazing collection of planes and information, this was an enjoyable visit. You can sit in the cockpit or on other vehicles and even fly a helicopter (virtual anyhow)
