We are local to this cafe and it used to be a great place to visit as you can go in without going into the museum and there is a lovely play area. The last couple of visits have gone downhill, however (and we won't be visiting again). After consistent staff for many of years there appears to have been... More

I had a few hours to kill so decided to take a visit one afternoon. Plenty of parking and a friendly lady on reception. I enjoyed the mix of aircraft although it would have been nice to have a few more open cockpits. To step inside the Lynx was great but the perspex screen seperating the cockpit took something away...

I have visited this wonderful museum on several occasions and always found it to be well worth the money. This time it has been badly let down by the inefficient restaurant staff. My wife and I often just call at the restaurant for a meal. However to-day when we arrived we were disgusted at the service and the attitude and... More

On entering the Museum we were given a friendly welcome and helpful advice on how to plan our visit. There are some very interesting exhibits and if the indoors becomes too much the café offers food and drink that can be enjoyed on an outside balcony that gives a good view of flying operations on this active Army helicopter base.

Went to the museum and just used the cafe facilities . On our arrival we were met by several table covered in used plates and cutlery and the floor littered with food and looking very dirty. Our food arrived quickly and tasted ok , but the general ambience of the cafe was that of mess. I have made several visits... More

Great museum displaying the fascinating history of Army Aviation in the U.K. This is where it started... observation kites and balloons, the first biplanes and the Royal Flying Corps, finally morphing into the RAF in 1918. Then the rejuvenation of Army aviation with aerial artillery observation and troop carrying gliders, evolving further into rotary aviation with helicopters. A really well... More

A revisit after a 23 year gap to see how well now the story of Army flying from early balloons and RFC biplanes is told. Other than a modern Apache Helicopter or a B.N. Defender it is all there including a comprehensive history of the Glider Regiment. It is amazing how many conflicts since the two World Wars the British... More

If you have interest in military aviation , this relatively small museum gives you a very good overview of army flying from WW1 to the present day. As my father was a WW2 glider pilot I particularly found the glider displays interesting
