First time back since Memorial was reopened

Worth a visit to enter the Scramble experience. Great interactive displays. Café a little sparse with low grade coffee on offer

If I am ever on holiday in South Kent I always visit this site and wander round with my own private thoughts, the Wall with all known participants in th Battle of Britain the sitting statue of the young Pilot gazing out across the channel waiting for comrades who will never return but who were young vibrant lads that morning,...

This was a fun stop on one of our tours. There are a couple of airplanes on display, a little museum about the importance of the fighter pilots to the WW II effort. There is s nice cafe with beautiful views of the site.

We paid £2 in the car park for 2 hours and managed to look around outside the free bit inside and the museum bit at £5 each for seniors and £6 otherwise. If you want to investigate some of the details of the airmen involved in the battle and/or want to use the cafeteria you may want to pay the... More

Stopped off yesterday on way to an appointment in Sandgate and wish I could have stayed longer - the new visitor centre was completed in 2015 and houses a very interesting and interactive exhibition that includes the Scamble Experience film which depicts a few hours in the lives of hurricane and spitfire pilots in the summer of 1940. You can... More

Not a place to spend ages at, in February but I'm sure in the warmer months is a lovely picnic spot. The memorial wall and monument are tastefully done and the building itself is attractive. I didn't go inside to the exhibition or try the cafe but both looked quite good.
