Why not make a weekend of it by staying on our newly launched campsite? We have pitches available for tents and motorhomes, and with water and toilets on-site you’ll have everything you need to enjoy a night under the stars in comfort.

There is a restaurant and play area, and dogs are welcomed on site (please note that as a working airfield, they will need to be kept on leads). You can read more about our campsite here.

Camping can be combined with our events, some of which are outlined below. Please take a look at our events page for more details on these and to book.


Engineering Open Workshop
Friday 28 – Saturday 29 December 2018
Get to see areas and projects not usually on view to the public and chat to our skilled aircraft engineers and volunteers, who love discussing what goes into rebuilding vintage aircraft, maintenance and the skills needed to keep these aircraft flying.
For more information visit the event page.

Please note, if you wish to camp and attend these events then you will need to purchase an event ticket when you book your camping pitch. If you do not have a valid ticket then you may not be granted access to the campsite.
