    A small but gem of a place with knowledgeable staff who it is worth taking the time to ask questions. The real highlight was the talk in the Vulcan cockpit. Made our visit. The tea room was nice too!  more »

  • Great exhibits and explanatory material. Fascinating history of Whittle and the jet engine. Lovely, helpful staff. Tasty snacks and cakes.
  • Lots of aircraft on display. Really liked the Vulcan, Argosy and the Victor cockpit.
  • Great informal air museum with some hands on touches you don't get elsewhere. We were allowed to go inside the Vulcan bomber. Amazing. They don't have the range that Cosford do and there is a small entrance fee, but overall well worth a visit.
  • The attitude of the volunteers and staff is absolutely fantastic. So willing to help and support visitors, really knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
  • We all thoroughly enjoyed it, adults and children alike.

Where to stay in Coventry

A stay among the Gothic and Victorian architecture of the city center is within walking distance of the main attractions. Consider a rental room or B&B on the medieval Spon Street or near the canal. Both locations are scenic and conveniently located near the city center. Full of local eateries and shops, the Earlsdon area offers less expensive apartment rentals.
