A good tour round the base spotting the different aircraft. Informative guide. Much enjoyed by all age groups. Food in the cafe basic but good and cheerfully served.

Thank A M

This review is of the bus tour of the airbase, rather than the visitors centre. The visitors centre is a gift shop and cafe attached to the viewing area.
The bus tour leaves at 2pm Mon-Thu and is often full so pays to phone up beforehand and book/check spaces (adults will require ID for the tour - photoID or credit card).
We were lucky enough to see a SeaKing rescue helicopter take off close up when we were going around the base and see lots of different aircraft around the base much closer than you'd ever normally be able to. The tour guide was friendly and chatty, suitable for both adults and children. You get to go in the training hanger and see some kit, but most of the tour is from the bus.

Popped in on the way to another attraction but glad we did, plenty of activity in the skies and seeing these helicopters in action was brilliant, would strongly recomend a visit

Started by going for a morning cuppa. The staff were so friendly and good fun we went back later for lunch Small menu but all adequate and reasonably priced Whilst there we decided to go on the coach tour of the station with v good commentary by Mary This is good value for money and highly recommended if you are interested in naval aircraft.
