Love visiting this attraction. Lots of interesting things to see. A fantastic cafeteria. NAFFI style hot food, sandwiches and cakes. Great facilities. The annual air show is great value with loads of extra stuff to do and see and lots of unusual planes. Highly recommended

I had been to the centre on several occasions of special events but a friend from Holland was visiting for a couple of days midweek so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. It was the Thursday before an event at the weekend and there were quite a lot of cars in the car park. Paid... More

Had a wonderful day out at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre's airshow on the 1st of August! Excellent programme, with warbirds and vintage aircraft on hand all day to entertain us. The commentators gave us interesting information about the 'planes that were flying and described their aerial displays in great detail, fully enhancing every performance. Facilities were very impressive, including... More

I have been here countless times and love it every time, you enter through the naafi which has an excellent gift shop and food and drinks available which are also of a very good standard. The museum is excellent with cabinet after cabinet of memorabilia and more information than you can take in, I still spot new things every time... More

Just spent 10 hours watching warbirds and classic planes flying annd performing but all the while beinng well aware that where we were sat 70plus years ago young men were flying to hell from this place. An awesome event with a poigniannt and touching reason. Will continue to go year after year.

There is something for everyone here, particularly those interested in WWII and the bombing aircraft like the Lancaster. There is plenty of free parking, an inexpensive cafe, and a gift shop. Admission is very reasonable at £7 for adults and £3 for children. The aircraft are situated in a series of hangers on an airfield. This gives a real 'feel'... More
