Geographically this area was the most important area in the country, if not the world, for aircraft experimental and development work between 1908 and the late 1960s, the most famous being the Spitfire.
We have 18 aircraft of various types, including the Spitfire and S6b. Our Engine Bay also has a good selection of engines.
We welcome people aboard the Sandringham Flying Boat; and why not take a tour onto the flight deck. Or you can imagine that you are flying the Swift or Harrier Jump Jet while sitting in the cockpit.

A great place to visit for young and old. Plenty to see and do. Myself and grandson enjoyed our time there. Highly recommend it. You can loose hours...Well worth the entrance fee with plenty of parking. You won’t regret it.
Surprisingly good. Very informative. You can go inside planes and cockpits, and it's sufficiently interesting for kids too. Information about Southampton's role during the second world war was an eye-opener as well. Recommend 2 hours to see everything.
