Small museum, but packed with exhibits, including various cockpit sections of planes that you can climb up into, (at a small additional charge). Manned by very knowledgeable volunteers, mostly ex Avro engineers I guess. Probably of the greatest appeal to real ‘air buffs’, but I...More
This is an amazing place for aviation enthusiasts. The history of this aircraft constructor, is amazing.
The staff are extremely knowledgable, they have amazing experiences to enthrall you.
It is worth taking the opportunity to experience one or all of the available cockpits.

Great for a 1/2day's entertainment and a piece...More

Very good visit for adults and or families. Very friendly staff and good café on first floor accessed via lift or stairs. Aircraft cockpits ( Vulcan, VC10 and Lancaster) available at extra cost of £2 each per person.
