  • This small but lovingly landscaped collection of aircraft is located next to East Midlands Airport and close to the Donington Park motor racing circuit. Staff is at your leisure to the acquisition of technology care.

  • Great day out, all four kids loved it, even us adults thought it was great. Got to look inside the Vulcan bomber and other planes. Definitely will return. 
  • Love this place, so much oily mechanics and really enthusiastic staff who share tales and insight into the craft. Simpky a must visit venue, enjoy the nostalgia.

  • I will wrtie about my first visit to the Aeropark at the open day Sunday 14-08-2016 1- I reached with the family the areopark with my car, there was a man at the entrance just informed us that the car parking is full and we have to go to donington park about 2 miles away, and a shuttle bus will bring us to the aeropark for free, we parked the car there and we paid in advance enterance fee to enter inside airplane, after we reached the aeropark with the shuttle i saw many cars were parking at the aeropark parking, ( it wasnt full as the man told us ) and no tickit control so who didnt pay also entered ( who paid felt like a donkey head). 2- they have a half of VC-10 aircraft ( fuselage cuted ) and they dont allow entrance to the cockpit and it doesnt make sense so it doesn't worth it to get in it at all, why its not allowed to enter a cockpit of a junk aircraft??? 3- rest of aircraft is junk and cockpit missing items and not interesting at all not good even to make pictures in it. 4- not allowed to get in the jet fighters cockpit ( all junk and missing item ). 5- the airshow last for 2 minutes only, and it was only one small airplane. 6- arround 17 o'clock when we went out to take the shuttle bus to our car, the shuttle bus had a defect, and the driver said sorry they cant pick us to the car parking at Donington park, and all the families with their babys and kids had to walk more than 2 miles to their car with no other choice
  • Brilliant place for a visit and picnic. Excellent mix of civil and military aircraft plus old and newer. Renovations on the go, new hangar being built plus museum displays inside. Great for views of everything arriving and leaving East Midlands Airport too ! Friendly helpful and knowledgeable staff.
  • Great place for the family, right next to runway. And some days you can go into old aircraft (not enough volunteers most days) Cafe inside and picnic area on the hill. Only a few pounds and free parking.
  • Great selection of aeroplanes including a Vulcan. Excellent place to view planes taking off from East Midlands Airport as it is next door and the viewing mound is above the fence. Good fun for 5 year olds and up.
  • I visited the Aeropark on a Sunday morning after landing back at East Midlands airport. There was ample free parking and I received a warm welcome when paying my entrance fee, which was very reasonably priced. I was then greeted by several volunteers around the Aeropark who were more than happy to show me the various aircraft. They even opened the Vulcan and the Wessex to allow me to look inside the cockpits, something which I've found isn't usually allowed at other similar museums. It was a very enjoyable morning and I would highly recommend the Aeropark to anybody with even the slightest interest in aviation.
