We stayed at Tattershall Lakes which is just round the corner and went mid week on the first tour of the day It was interesting and the guide was very knowledgeable Because it is on a working RAF base, you do get noise from jets coming and going and there are staff working in the background which at times make...

We would not have known to visit BBMF if our nephew, stationed at Raf Coningsby, hadn't told us. We enjoyed it very much, especially the tour, guided gy a very knowledgeable volunteer, and the extra commentary by our nephew.

The guided tour of the hangar/workshop costs a very reasonable £4.50 for a nominal hour. Our knowledgeable volunteer guide Lloyd kept us informed, amused and entertained for almost two! To... More
