We visited on a very warm and sunny day which made wandering around very enjoyable. Plenty to see (but don't expect to see lots of planes - just one bomber in the hanger). We had lunch too and it managed to keep us and our 2-year amused for the morning.

I have to say this museum absolutely smashed my expectations to pieces. I knew there was a Lancaster and a museum and though it would be a nice quick visit. How wrong I was. The site is virtually an almost authentic WW2 airfield recreation. The lancaster is truly a sight to behold. We were lucky that the aircraft was doing... More

I had been given a VIP Taxy ride in the Lancaster as a Christmas present and took my eldest daughter Lucy along as a guest. From the moment we arrived we were well looked after. The place is family owned and run (the Panton family) as a tribute to a family member killed in the war flying a Lancaster. This... More

A unique place where you can feel the history. Home to one of the few surviving Lancaster bombers and a wealth of information about the airmen who flew in them. So much I didn't know and really well presented. Great place for families. Even admit dogs. Give yourself 2 or 3 hours to soak it all up.

I had booked a VIP taxy ride for my partners Christmas present - I purchased it in May 2013 and the soonest we could visit was July 2014. We went on Thu 24th July - a beautiful day for such a special experience. As part of the voucher, I was able to join my partner as his guest. We arrived... More

Absolutely fantastic for anyone interested in WW2 planes and the Lancaster in particular. A taxy ride in a Lanc cannot be done anywhere else in the world. This is not cheap but I know it will be a long lasting memory for me any my 15 year old son. Staff very friendly and informative and the rest on the centre... More

My husband bought me an inside tour of a Lancaster at the Heritage centre as my father was a rear gunner. It was an amazing day. The men who did the tour were incredibly informative and explained everything so well. We were extremely lucky when we were there as there was a fly past by a Lancaster. The large hangar... More
