David J- Google Review
Well organised viewing platform for aircraft spotters, plenty of seating and a great little fair with rides for younger children, plus the mighty Concorde in its own special building, but lots of other aircraft as well to look at and board.
"Lovely Place"

Lovely place to come for all ages, very close to the runway and has a tannoy telling you information about which flight is arriving and departing. Cafe and gift shop on site which had a variety of items, would recommend
