Hard to find but headed for the Ferry Terminal turn left at the roundabout about 50yds up its the stone building on the left attached to the arch over the road. Limited parking, free admission but you can leave a donation. Interesting displays, plenty of material to see, all on ground floor level. Cafe onsite

It's not easy to find this place but head for the Martello gun tower at the end of Fort Road (not the other gun tower that was a museum and has now got flooded?). This is where the workshop is and volunteers clean and conserve items recovered from the only known Mark 1 flying boat to exist. This aircraft is... More

Partook in a Maritime Air Association Reunion at Pembroke Dock for a weekend which coincided with their celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic. The Flying boat centre is where local enthusiasts are restoring a Sunderland aircraft that is being recovered from the Milford Sound nearby. The workshop has a huge amount of historical artifacts in it... More

A great visit to your Flying Boat Visitor Centre in Pembroke Dock. I was visiting family in Wales for the month of April 2013 and I am from Nova Scotia Canada, my family thought it was a great place to see. I was very impressed when I saw people working on parts of the Sunderland behind the barriers. I learned... More

Being very interested in WW2 aviation and Coastal Command the Centre was a magnet for me. Especially as the trust exists to recover a Sunderland seaplane from the bottom of Pembroke Dock! Their website contained all the relevant travel info. The centre is split over two sites a few hundred yards apart: the workshop & the museum. Firstly I must... More

We had a great time at this visitor centre, even though they were in the process of moving to a new site. The exhibition was fascinating and the 4 volunteers present were so interesting to chat to. Anyone with any interest at all in WWII history, especially aviation, will enjoy it.

This place is WELL off the beaten track, and is not as well publicised as it could be. The entry is free, but it does contain a wealth of information on the flying boats, and donations are appreciated. It is run by a friendly band of volunteers who also work on the restoration of the 'boats'. Check the opening times... More

We came across the Flying Boat Visitor Centre purely by chance and, what a piece of luck, it was an amazing experience. Although it is currently housed in a small building, the place is packed with information and wonderful photographs. Cheerful banter was coming from the workshop where we found three volunteers restoring an engine. They soon stopped work and... More
