This place is popular with families. Gives a great opportunity for children to see the big planes taking off. Best observed when there is a Northerly wind blowing so that the planes are coming down by the viewing platform.

Took our 3yo to watch a few planes taking off. We were there at least 30mins and didn't get any decent view of landings. Take offs were good. It's ok and young kids may like it, but there is nothing else there apart from a...More

Great spot and kids loved to see the planes There was a few plane spotters that made it more enjoyable for the kids as they told them all about every plane that was taking off or landing Cheers
