A really enjoyable visit. After paying to park the rest is free. I would recommend the £4 for up to 6 hours not the £3 for the lesser time as with a break to eat you will need more than 3 hours. On this visit...More

I've been driving past here every day on the way to work for the past year and a half so thought I'd pay a visit with my youngest. Free entry. Cafe well overpriced. Very helpful staff. Got there at 13.00 and stayed for 3 hours....More

Thoroughly enjoyable. Pity dogs not allowed in hangers as too hot a day to leave in car. Still some exterior planes to view.

A visit to the RAF Aircraft Museum is a must for history buffs where Fighter Craft from WWII to the Cold War from both sides of the war are immaculately preserved and displayed. It doesnt hurt that the entrance is free too!

Very crowded day. The Exhibition is well thought out and designed with minimum foot wear-and-tear. Any ex-RAF member should see something they remember or recall flying in, or working on. Perhaps just seeing fly bye when they were on base.

This is a fantastic museum! £4 to park then free entry. The exhibits are excellent and the Cold war display is phenomenal. You can spend hours here with plenty to do with children too. Highly recommended.

Good aircraft museum. The newish, cold war area is a good memory jogger for me. Lots to see. Good day out for family of all ages.

Approximately 0.8 miles from the station, a relatively flat walk with a small ascent to the museum entrance.
