The viewing area is great and so close to the aircrafts. You have an excellent view of planes taking off and landing. Morning viewing is better as long hauls flights are arriving early. Most spectacular is the Emirates A380. Parking cost £12 per day. I...More

Yes the café is very close to the runway, it's better outside the café. We spent about 3 hours there but we did the Nimrod and Concorde tour which took about 2 hours. Well worth a visit.
