Map and directions.


The site is wheelchair accessible and wheelchairs can be borrowed free of charge.


Our land train, the Airfield Explorer, provides accessible transport between the hangars.


The hangars have ramped access, however, due to the historic nature of our collection some of the aircraft, including Concorde, are not accessible to everyone.


Adapted toilets are available.


Guide dogs, hearing dogs and other recognised assistance dogs are admitted.


You can find more access information here.

Our free events programme is supported by players of People's Postcode Lottery.
