A wonderful, thought provoking visit that i will happily recommend and repeat in the future. The original buildings are being brought back to life giving a real sense of history as we walked around the site. Our tour guide was excellent, giving us a day that i have been thinking about ever since.

We were taken here by relatives who have recently moved to the area and had already enjoyed a visit here.
Our guide Gary was brilliant... really knowledgeable about the site and he spent a lot of time with us explaining about the buildings and taking us in to view some of the aeroplanes.
There was a nice cafe and a great shop which was not at all overpriced.
There were lots of displays to see and the small museum was very interesting.
We were able to take our dogs into all areas which was greatly appreciated. We spent around 3.5 hours there and could have stayed longer.
Highly recommended.

My parents took me and my family here. It was really hidden away and difficult to find (follow the google maps directions and you’ll find it, you may have to open a gate to get in!) but well worth it. The museum and all the displays were excellent, much higher quality than I expected and we had a really nice tour by a volunteer tour guide. The cafe bit was great too and excellent value. Well worth a trip.

Firstly don’t be put off with the rather poor signposting.
This little gem sits at the end of a 3/4 mile long farm track ( be patient and follow it to the end). You need to book into one of the guided tours to actually see the aircraft.
A very interesting tour, many many new things learned.
The aircraft are amazing, and it really brings it home how brave those lads were.
The first aircraft you see is a replica of Bleriots plane he crossed the channel in. One word ‘flimsy’.
Not saying anymore but please please give it a look in.

We started in the local pub which was excellent. Then the aerodrome just down the road. The guides were very knowledgable. They told us the complete history with stories about the personnel serving there. Each building was interesting in it's own right. The plane exhibits were interesting and also the history and development. It was, after all, less than 10 years after the first ever flight! A great family day out but particularly for the older family members.
