Staffed by volunteers. An interesting, and instructive, museum. Suitable for all ages. Allow about 2 hours. The only downside was the café where drinks are served from one of those press-button machines. My other half ordered an Americano with milk which was undrinkable as it...More

The comment about being suitable for all ages is appreciated. The criticism of the Tea Room is somewhat perverse. Coffee is provided from a very expensive 'bean-to-cup' machine whilst tea is freshly brewed. The soup does not, repeat not, come from supermarket cartons. In order...More

A great half day, made all the better by the gentlemen who work at Tangmere. A must visit venue if you are interested in aviation and history.

Tangmere’s association with the Battle of Britain and the Special Operations Executive were guaranteed to pique my interest when in the area. However, with this museum the devil is in the detail: the actual planes themselves are a big disappointment: the prototype Spitfire, Lysander and...More

When we were there they were working on the car park so we were unable to walk round the outside display. Inside was very interesting with lots to see, spent about 3 hours wandering round.

Noted. Unfortunate about the car park work precluding close viewing of the aircraft but inevitable I'm afraid. We notified the work on our website
