  • Easy to find, well signposted. Parking ample and free. Admission is £8 adult. Welcoming and helpful staff. We arrived just in time to witness the avro Lancaster fire up and do a taxi run. Apparently you can book beforehand to take a ride on this magnificent beast. The Lancaster itself is worth the admission price as it's stunning and sounds amazing. Plenty more buildings and vehicles to look around. The cafe and shop was clean, well priced and staff were happy to serve. Toilet facilities are easily accessible and clean. Fell on this place by accident and would definitely go again. Would recommend.
  • If you are interested in military history this is a great day out. The museum is nearly all wheelchair accessible, apart from two exhibits that were up stairs. Easy and plentiful parking.
  • Best £7 I've spent for a long time. Privately run museum with lots of donated memorabilia and personal written accounts. Only privately owned Lancaster Bomber in the process of having 4 new engines installed to enable it to hopefully get back into the air asap ..Loved it!!!
  • Absolutely wonderful. A must do if you have interest in WW2 history. Not even an airforce buff more army myself and we enjoyed it.
  • You have got to go here, this is history close up, alot of the people who work here are family of the two brothers whom started this fantastic place. I was there on B Holiday monday. There was an event on with tanks and a small air display. Small as the B,hol weather put play to some of it. But in anycase we had an airfield tour with the son of one of the founders, he was so informative, with a passion for the whole place, yes you pay to get in, but the experience leaves you wanting them to get this wonderful old aircraft flying again. And i am sure they will. Keep doing what your doing.
