Experience a true legend; the only one in the Caribbean - the British Airways G-BOAE Concorde affectionately known as Alpha Echo. Your tour is for an approximate 45 minutes to 1 hour which includes an awe-inspiring presentation titled "Engineered for Speed" and being able to board the aircraft where they watch another presentation onboard of the in-flight experience of Concorde.

Your tour guide takes you around the facility and provides you with all of the relative facts and historic features on the Alpha Echo Concorde.

If you are at the airport you can take a brief walk across to the taxi stand area and enter through the side gate for easier access to the facility from there.

There is no audio or video recording allowed on tour but guests are allowed to take as many photographs as possible. Guests are required to lock their bags in the lockers provided and they are also required to keep the key for their specific locker until they have completed their tour. (please note that one locker should be used per person as there are numerous lockers available for use therefore there is no need for various guests to share)

With only three remaining world wide it is great to have the opportunity to go on board a Concorde and to sit in one of the seats as well. The guides are very informative and recently one couple even got married on board the Concorde.

It was a nice experience. A lot of information was given about the concorde. We went in a group of 10. One of our group members is hearing impaired. It would be nice if they could update the video information with closed captioning. Also, it would be nice to have the feel of the sonic boom while actually on the... More

While visiting a friend in Barbados for his birthday the Concorde experience was surprisingly much more than expected. The knowledge and enthusiasm of the presenter, the condition of the aircraft, the artifacts and slideshows were all amazing. The time they took to take us on the aircraft and around the outside of it and explain every detail was surprising. Well... More

For all aviation fans it is a must see place. You get guided tour and video presentation. You get on board the plane and you can seat in the seats. It just the pity she does not fly.

I have visited this place before but always great to revisit a treasure gifted by BA to the island. Great to get a feel of what passengers were paying £8k for a flight to the island and back to UK. Very friendly and lovely staff.

This was No1 on the list of non beach/sea related things to do while on this trip to Barbados. My wife is a Concorde buff (her fathers best friend piloted this aircraft to Barbados and back several times) and she soaked in every scrap of information the guide 'Heike' gave. At BD$40per person this attraction is not the cheapest on... More

It must have been quite an experience to ride on the Concorde. I love airplanes and couldn't really miss this when I was in Barbados. In the end my family, who is not as into planes as I am, all had a great time. My 14-year-old still mentions it a few weeks later and that doesn't happen often. It is... More
