  • Brilliant. Kids and adults both loved it. Do not miss the Avro Vulcan and Trident cockpit experiences. Amazing volunteers. If you are around Cheltenham, I will certainly recommend a visit.
  • We've taken our children here a few times now - fantastic place full of really interesting history. Friendly staff and volunteers - no doubt we'll be back again during the summer holidays.
