The Centre is home to Lancaster NX611 and a museum based on a WWII airfield with original control tower, Escaping Society museum, Home Front exhibition, Hampden restoration project, memorial chapel and many memorabilia exhibitions. The Centre is open Mon-Sat. Closed Sundays. During the Summer the Lancaster performs taxy runs usually once a week. It is possible to have a taxy ride on the Lancaster, booking is essential as rides get booked up months in advance.

Great place, hangers full of bit and pieces which are being re done or have been dug up. The Lancaster does a run but not take off for a price. Restaurant if good,

This has to be the best place we have visited this year. This is as near to a Lancaster as you can get, unless you book well in advance and go for the taxi ride in it. We thought it would be a couple of...More

We visited the centre today and we were suitably impressed. This place is well thought out giving you the sights, sounds and maybe even the smells of WWII. The icing on the cake of course was the Avro Lancaster Bomber which came out of the...More
