We are currently developing plans to launch our brand new on site café -a lovely space for families to enjoy a range of healthy food and drink in a unique setting. Coming soon in 2021

NEW Café

Inside our brand new café area, we have plans to include a small soft play, to help families keep nimble feet and active minds busy, in a fun and friendly environment.

NEW Soft Play

We are in the very early stages of launching two brand new exhibits. These exhibit will feature aviation artefacts, engineering inspired art and a historic aviation timeline.

NEW Exhibits

To support those families who would to bring their own picnic, or BBQ, we are developing an area just for you, so families wanting to tailor their experience -can!

NEW Picnic Area

As a charity we are committed to the learning of children at every age, and therefore the Museum is currently developing plans to install a new educational outdoor play area.

NEW Pay Area

If you dining in our café, you will be able to relax inside or out, by taking advantage of our new terrace seating areas, which will overlook our aircraft and 30-acre estate.

If you're visiting us by car,  we have ample hard standing and on grass parking facilities for our visitors on site and best of all all parking fees are included in your ticket price.

Don't forget to check out our little gift shop when you visit. Offering museum goers the opportunity to take away a museum memento from their visit. Just another way to support our charity.

Although we don't currently have a cafe on site, we do offer our visitors to the Museum the opportunity to buy a range of refreshments including tea, coffee, snacks and ice-creams.


We have a wonderful range of aircraft and aviation artefacts on display,

from the golden age that will help bring to life the history behind British  Aviation Heritage.

We have several experienced tour guides, who are regularly on hand to guide our visitors around the museum and inside some of our beloved aircraft that we have on display.

Some of our volunteers are experienced engineers, who are often working on new projects, that visitors can watch, and ask questions about regarding the work being carried out.

Interactive Activities

Children and the young at heart can get behind the controls in our in flight simulator, real-size helicopter and so much more - with new attractions coming in 2021. 

Working closely with local schools and colleges, we're here to help educate the minds of tomorrow and offer a range of fun and engaging on site and

online activities.

Picnic Area

We welcome all visitors to bring their own packed lunch and enjoy the open green space of our 30-acre estate. Picnic benches are available on a first come first serve basis.

Nature Trail

Visitors can take a stroll around our beautiful 30-acre estate. We often see deer free roaming in the fields, so keep a watchful eye out as you enjoy the natural surroundings.

Dog Friendly

A benefit of visiting the museum is that it is very dog friendly. If you do visit us to just enjoy the hours walk around the grounds, we do kindly ask for a £2 charitable donation to park your car.

Gatwick Runway

If you thought we were close to the Gatwick Airport you're right, but did you know that you can watch the planes take off from the runway? If not, don't forget to include this in your next visit.

Whether you have a function, board meeting, conference or team building event, we can offer several on site agile room hire solutions, that are both flexible and affordable.

If you're looking to hire a venue that offers ample parking and access to a beautiful 30-acre estate,

our museum grounds could be the perfect backdrop to host your next event.



We have a wealth of new and exciting development plans coming soon to the Museum in 2021

We run several amazing community led events annually. Although our plans are currently on hold, check back soon for updates on our exciting calendar of events planned in for 2021.
