“A good tour - worth a visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Have just returned from Barbados and whilst there took the Barbados Concorde Experience tour. Whilst the tour of Concorde was very good, I doubt whether this attraction will be there in a year or so. This is based on the fact that (a) we were the only ones on it and (b) some of the attractions have been damaged and not replaced i.e no flight simulator anymore and the experience is looking very sorry for itself. The staff were great and it is well worth a visit.

Word of warning the attraction is only open Tues - Saturday from 9am to 5pm and costs 40 BDD (approx. £12) per person.

“Closed”

Closed for a private function when I visited, so be sure to check before you go. Nothing on the website, so you'll have to phone.

“Thrilling experience for someone who actually flew on the Concorde!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

We visited the Concorde Experience as part of a cruise ship excursion...primarily because my husband had flown in this exact same plane in 1982 from Heathrow to Dulles. Never did we expect they would treat him like a celebrity....many of the other tourists wanted to hear his personal experience with the plane, a man wanted a picture of us, the guide asked him questions about the plane....nice to be in your late 60's and be celebrity for a day! The tour itself is very good, the facility clean and kept up, pristine restrooms, nice little gift shop and a dedicated tour guide. The movie was spectacular shown on the side of the plane.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

My partner and I took the opportunity to see the exhibition on our departure day. We checked in our luggage at Grantley Adams airport and then walked over to Concorde which took 2 or 3 minutes. We were welcomed and paid US$40 for both of us, we were thrilled to receive Concorde boarding passes to keep as souvenirs. Allison was our guide who walked us around the exhibition and on board inside Concorde.

The presentation of Concorde giving facts about its speed, build, destinations, customers etc was projected onto the side of Concorde for us to watch, it lasted 10 minutes approximately and I thought it was just the right amount of information - not too scientific and technical but all facts were given in an interesting and simple way.

You can look around the aircraft inside and outside and there are displays of memorabilia from the plane as well as more detailed information of the history. You can spend as much or as little time here as you like but I would recommend an hour.

We were the only people in the exhibition, so our tour and commentary started immediately, I assume if it's busier you may have to wait. After the tour was finished with Allison we took some photos and looked around and read all the information. Allison was a really nice friendly guide as were all the other staff.

We are not avid plane enthusiasts, but Concorde is special and we thought we would go and visit and we were glad we did. It is a much better way to spend your last hour in Barbados than wandering round the shops in the airport.

Thank you to all the team at Concorde Barbados!

“Wonderful attraction and a chance to get on Concorde!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

My boys loved this museum- attraction. We had an informative guide and we all a great time getting to walk through and sit on a real Concorde! A definite must for plane spotters or those with kids looking to do something different.
