What a fab place. We booked the Concord tour to coincide with emirates 380 departing at 2pm. The guides were wonderful, Geoff & Bob. Concord itself is beautiful. Would definitely recommend a visit for anyone who has an interest in planes.

We visited here with our 2 year old who loved seeing the planes up close. We thought it would be a 'cheapish' day out, sadly we were wrong and it could end up costing a lot. £5 for 2 hours parking or £12 for 4...More

I visited here on Saturday afternoon with family. I have been before as I live fairly close to the airport. For being able to view planes landing and taking-off it is perfect. Great spot and you couldn't really get any closer to the action. However...More

The guy in the car park hut had us in stitches as soon as we arrived, everything was sign posted, so no chance of straying from the path. A Lancaster bomber flew over on its way to Woodford to my husbands delight. We were escorted...More

This is a great place to view take off, landing and taxi-ing aircraft as they head to the stands after landing. Good facilities, parking, restaurant - and if you time it right then you get a lot of aircraft in 2 hours including a regular...More

This place is great despite steep car park charges and expensive food! But if you take your own food there are plenty of picnic benches and grass to sit on. If you like planes and you get a nice dry day this is a great...More

I love going here, a great place to sit and have a outdoor picnic with family and watch some incredible take off and landings...... it's not everyday you get too see aeroplanes at their actual size instead of over 30,000 feet in the sky..... Great...More

Car parking is expensive and seemed to be disorganised. The actual parking area was pretty rough and lots of puddles. The Concorde video prior to the actual visit to the aircraft was pathetic and certainly gave little indication of the magnificent engineering involved in producing...More

Hi Becky, It depends what you want from the day out or trip to be honest. The cafe is great, but an hour or maybe a couple of hours maximum is all that a person can manage there. If you are into planes then the viewing is... More

Take off is 2pm If planning to do the Concorde experience, which is so good, book the 1pm tour. And then when it finishes at 1.45 time for a coffee or sandwich and watch the A380 leave
