Hi, so sorry that your question seemed to have slipped through the net. Our usual Trip advisor person has been off sick for the past few months. Anyway, it is absolutely free entry to the ground floor exhibitions. The entry fee for the ATA exhibition is £3.50 for adults or £3 concessions, and that is an annual pass. Our spitfire simulator is just £7.50 for a 15 minute flight.
