Fortunately, unlike the previous recent visitor and his bizarre comments, most people are able to read about the unique exhibits and converse with the enthusiastic volunteers, some of these having served with the RAF. The whole point is that these historic items come with a...More

Whilst this museum is good, the £5.00 entry fee is simply ridiculous. If you aren’t bothered about reading about the exhibits and just want to look then you’ll be out in less than a minute. The artefacts on display are amazing, lots to read and...More

Shoreham is my favourite place to escape to. I have been visiting for the past 10 years but don’t always pop into the cafe due to it being too crowded at times. If it’s not, I definitely pop in and enjoy the surroundings. They do...More
