From Our Editors

Get up close to some of the most powerful and interesting naval aircraft to have taken to the skies at the Fleet Air Arm Museum, the largest collection in Europe. Step on board of the first British Concorde, look into the cockpit and also step inside a Sea King helicopter. Immerse in the HMS Ark Royal Aircraft Carrier experience with the thrills and sounds of a working flight deck. 'Fly' by a helicopter to the replica flight deck of the aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal. On board the Ark Royal a Phantom strike fighter and a Buccaneer strike bomber taking off and landing can be seen. With the museum being located on a working naval air station there is even the chance of spotting real naval aircraft taking flight. The museum also has a fully licensed restaurant, children’s playground, picnic area, museum shop and full disabled access.

Wonderful to see the UKs aviation legacy although also a little sad that there is now so little left. Worth a visit to see Concorde 002 alone and Harrier and Pegasus engines and the supersonic version Bristol BS100 that would have kept the Supersonic Harrier at the forefront of aviation. Especially great at the Museum is the ability to touch the engines and aircraft and get a real feel for them - I didn't think I would be able to sit on Concordes wheel :-)

Really good family day out. Informative, with lots of things for the kids to 'do', and an onsite café with basic but good food. Highly recommended - we're planning to go again!

We had a great afternoon out with our two children. I would thoroughly recommend the museum especially the aircraft experience. Plenty of things for the children to get involved in and touch screens etc.
