Experience Details

What makes this Spitfire tour unique is that it's a private viewing as the hangar isn't open to the general public. This is your chance to have a good look around this working hangar, witness the everyday goings on, and see how the talented team works.

You'll be met by one of the Spitfire team on arrival and shown through reception. Somewhat innocuous from the outside, this place is a true treasure trove for aviation fans. As soon as the door from the office area to the main hangar is opened the view will take your breath away.

What really stands out is that it is all so much more real and somehow interactive than your usual aircraft museum. This is where all the wonderful restoration work is done, where many of the aircraft are housed after they've been certified airworthy and also where other privately owned examples of Spitfires are hangared.

You can get properly up close to these aircraft, but as it is a working environment you will be accompanied on your Spitfire tour for your own safety - and also so your host can explain everything there is to know about these majestic winged residents.
