Wow... what a place, if you want a day out with the family I’d highly recommend. Children can sit in the planes and it’s educational. Run by raf volunteers... it has a nice cafe but can be a bit tricky to find

Run by volunteers, some of whom are ex RAF, this is a great place to visit. Lots of planes to see, and you can sit in the cockpit of a harrier. Lots of models of motorbikes, cars and planes in cases, a real boy's adventure....More
