My wife's father flew in Halifaxes during the war from nearby Pocklington, and we were here to get some sort of feel for his experiences. We had prebooked to tour the Halifax that they have restored here and because of the family connection, we were...More

Enjoyed a visit here recently. Vast amount of information and exhibits to absorb / view. " NAAFI " canteen served excellent food at lunchtime. Modest prices for a visitor attraction. 1940`s British aircrew may not have had the opportunity to try tasty beef chilli..!
