Visit the Vulcan Day
See former Royal Air Force bomber Avro Vulcan XL426 up close at our Visit the Vulcan Day. You can walk round the Vulcan and for an additional fee you can climb inside for a guided tour of the cockpit.
As well as the Vulcan, there will be much to keep the whole family entertained. There will be examples of the weapons carried by the Vulcan during its time with the RAF, including examples of the type of 1,000 lb high explosive bomb the Vulcan dropped on Port Stanley airfield during the 1982 Falklands Conflict.
Other displays will be announced - watch this space!
There will be burger, hot dog and sweet stands, so no one will go hungry or thirsty. Our souvenir stand will be open selling a selection of Vulcan souvenirs, including models, badges, patches, postcards, books and much more.
Cockpit visits will take place on a timed ticket basis, so there will be no need to stand and queue.
Limited free car parking will be available close to the Vulcan. Please follow the ‘Vulcan Open Day’ direction signs after entering the airport. If the Vulcan car park is full, visitors will need to park in the airport’s short stay car park (for which there is a charge) which is approximately 10 minutes walk from the Vulcan.
Sorry – due to airport rules, we regret that no pets can be admitted with the exception of assistance dogs.
