“Tesco clubcard day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

We visited the attraction today because we had a day's out voucher to use and wanted a day out that was indoors with plently to see what ever the weather.

Really enjoyed the exhibits and found the concorde very interesting to view and to be able to walk through was great.

Enjoyed the refreshments form the Swordfish restaurant.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

This is definatly worth a visit for all the family. I found the experience/visit well worth the entry fee, and would definatly come again.

The exhibits are well laid out and information on each exhibit was informative.

There is ample free car parking, and well sign posted.

You can bring your own, or go to the restaurant on site which had a varied menu, and isn`t that expensive compared to other venues that I've been to.

Would I recomend to others? most definatly

Would I come again? Yes

“Great place for all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

WORTH A VISIT!!!

It is a good place.We came in on a 50% discount offer and it was truly worth it.
The variety of planes was great. The Concorde was great. The Lynx simulator wasn`t like what I had expected. I had gone on one at Fairford RIAT 2013 and that was really cool! The Carrier was cool but it got a bit boring waiting for the green light to come on.The shop is over-priced.

Overall it was a great visit and worth for the money.

Be prepared to be walking all day and bring an empty camera to fill up with photos. It`s ideal to have flash on. In hall 4 , the Concorde room, it is very dim. Some places Prams and buggys are available to park.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Thought we'd stop off for a 'quick' look round on our way home, & we got back to Yorkshire at about 11pm. This is definately a full day visit & more. There is something for everybody, & kids will be entertained for hours. There are masses of well presented interactive games & activities. I finally got to go on concorde too! The Falklands exhibit just about had me in tears reading the memories of those affected. Our elderly friend coped quite well & was able to find places to sit for a rest. The ticket sounded pricey at first, but there is so much to see, & you can go back on the same ticket! There is a cafe on the site, but it was a but pricey, more like a posh service station. Plenty of parking, & well worth a few visits as you will never get round everything in one day
