What makes your perfect day out with the kids? Is it the small pleasures such as a picnic by the lake or making big discoveries like seeing some of the oldest flying machines in the world?

In our Swiss Garden, you’ll find the perfect selfie background and how about a chat with the engineers in our workshop while they restore vintage aircraft? Then relax with a locally made slice of cake and barista coffee as the children wear themselves out in our large play area - completely family friendly.

"Great collection of planes and great to see them taking off and landing so close by, brilliant play area and gorgeous gardens and parkland."

Upcoming Events

If you’ve never witnessed a 1909 Blériot XI take off or experienced yoga outdoors, don’t miss our summer events programme. Guaranteed ooohs and ommms.

A beautiful day

Stunning gardens and an interesting collection. Staff are friendly and helpful, the site is vast and it’s easy to spend a day there.

Plenty to see

Great day out on a lovely day. Took a 13, 11 and 7yr old and was surprised how well they ALL loved it. Plenty to see in the hangers, lovely gardens, large children's playground and cafe.

Great family day out

Beautiful and interesting and peaceful walks through the Swiss gardens... and interesting displays of old cars and aeroplanes. Great for a family day out.
