From Our Editors

Commemorating the county's rich flying history, Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre is located on the site of a World War II airfield amid the East Kirkby greenery. The collection includes a restored Avro Lancaster bomber flown during the war, and taxi rides in the cockpit are available when booked in advance. The control tower features waxwork operators and recreated audio and video recordings, while the RAF Escaping Society exhibit is a tribute to aviators who landed behind enemy lines. Visitors can stop by the memorial chapel to read the names of the RAF East Kirby crew lost during WWII, or experience an authentic black out or air raid siren. Further attractions include a Barnes Wallis Bouncing Bomb, a mock air raid shelter and a home front exhibition.

Waste of time and money, we were very disappointed the main attraction a Lancaster bomber was being painted so we were not allowed to view it and as there were very little else to view.

Great place to visit amazing work has been done here & is still being done. Lots of dedicated staff & volunteers. We had a great time looking round all the war memorabilia,we took our 2 dogs with us it's great to visit. They have a great cafe & gift shop. Just Jane Lancaster Bomber is being lovingly restored, great to see such a beautiful piece of history being transformed. Visit you won't be disappointed.

A wonderful good value day out. Loads to see and some very moving displays telling the stories of wartime. We intend to come back; too much for one day! Excellent cafe too.
