I have visited BBMF many times with Air cadets so I did not do the hangar trip. The visitor centre is a little disappointing . The shop area does not inspire me to buy anything.

Some of the last remaining WW2 aircraft still flying including a Avro Lancaster, Hawker Hurricane, Douglas Dakota and several variants of Spitfire (one of which actually flew in the Battle of Britain). Lots of technical info for the enthusiast

The Museum itself is free to enter and browse the shop. For a reasonable fee you can take a Guided Tour of the BBMF Hanger, where you will be informed and shown every aspect of the BBMF's collection. Luckily the day I was there, all the aircraft were on site. The detail and anecdotes of the guide was exceptional. As a side issue you can look through the4 perimeter fence and watch Typhoons being worked on, taxiing onto the runway. Not so many years ago you would have been unable to do this, being against the Official Secrets Act.

It was good, well relaxed, a nice place to go and interesting.... however, four pounds entry wasnt worth the money.

There is not much to say except - go and see it for yourself. A true piece of history
