The Runway Visitor Park

Enjoy a fun outdoor day at the park

Whether its viewing takes offs and landings, enjoying a bite to eat or getting up close to one of our 5 retired aircraft, there's lots to do at the park this summer. 

The park has over 9,000 square metres of viewing space and over 50 picnic benches. Social distancing measures apply and the park has achieved Visit England's 'We're good to go' status.
