Owner description: Shoreham Airport is the UK's oldest fully operational licensed aerodrome and remains at the forefront of general aviation in this country. Built in 1934, the Art-Deco Terminal Building is Grade II* listed and is still in everyday use by business, training and pleasure flyers alike including many visitors from Europe. Many of the fixtures are original including the Whispering Gallery on the first floor and the main window design above the main entrance. The Terminal Building is currently undergoing a renovation to take it back to its former glory, which should be completed in 2015.

“Worth the trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Can't see how they could ever make this is into a commercial airpot. Access is slow and in some places it is tight too. Good for a morning or afternoon trip out on a good day. Reasonable cafe and good museum. Fun day for all ages.

“Good place for flying lessons”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

Bought my wife an acrobatics lesson at Shreham in a Piper Cub, she loved it, nice location for this as they can fly over the sea and the downs. They do all kinds of light aircraft & helicopters. You can also cycle from here in a circular route of maybe 3-4 miles.

“What you would expect.. No more, No Less.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Nice little airport where you can sit either inside the Cafe or just outside to watch the planes taking off and landing on a regular basis. Food and drink is average. Highlight of the year is the Shoreham Air show, always good fun and have attended for years. However, it is becoming increasingly expensive to attend and somewhat more commercialised in recent years, but still enjoyable.
