This is a good venue. Especially for well known comedians trying out new material. Need to find out and book early. Bar is reasonable albeit a little overpriced.

My son had 30 minutes on the excellent Spitfire simulator. He absolutely loved it, and the guidance from the instructor was spot on. Highly recommend this little place for anyone interested in aviation, particularly WW2 and the ATA.

Small but most interesting museum type but also information centre. Includes a remarkable spitfire cockpit experience so slightly unusual.

I arranged a spitfire simulator flight for my husband’s birthday. We were made to feel so welcome and the tour of the exhibition was great. The flight was fab great fun. Would highly recommend.

We popped in pre football match. It’s laid out really well, has some excellent pieces and you can actually interact with a lot of it. Definitely worth a stop if you’re new to the area and want an overview of the history.
