  • Attended the fireworks event. What great fireworks. Magic to see the Lancaster taxi. The only thing that I would suggest is to get all the long lens camera dudes out the way in am area they can still get some good pics They stood infront of children and wheelchair users. Will visit for a proper look another day.
  • Had a fantastic day with my family. Food and the brew was lovely. The people that worked there were fantastic and couldn't do enough as i was in a wheel chair. Well worth a visit, if war history and planes are your thing.
  • Once again a fantastic evening a very well run event by a good team.the taxi run very emotional remembering the young pilot who flew them. The fireworks excellent and lots of them but a little disappointed not to music like last year. Well done East Kirkby.
  • Wonderful place. The restored Avro Lancaster is a thing of beauty, but there is lots of other interesting things too. More exhibitions than you would think (their website isnt the best) and plenty of machinery to see. Amazing history which should be enjoyed by everyone. Special mention for the staff who were really lovely, and the food is very generous! Would recommend
  • A fascinating insight into the lives of the real heroes of the war. The stories of the pilots and crews who were killed during their missions, the wreckage of the planes, and how the lives of the people they left behind were changed, are so interesting, you can spend hours just reading the accounts. There are also diaries of the airmen, of course the wonderful "Just Jane", billet huts to look into, the old tower and not forgetting the delicious food in the NAAFI cafe! Well worth a visit. You won't be disappointed.
