Sundays are Fun Days

Sundays are Fun Days

Every Sunday from 28th July to 1st September will be ‘Sundays are Fun Days’ at the park, with all day children’s rides, bouncy castles, and trampolines* for only £5. Whilst the kids are jumping around, parents can relax in the Concorde Restaurant, spend some time on the viewing platforms watching the take offs and landings of the airport’s hundreds of daily flights, or explore the aircraft on one of the park’s many tours.

*Children can play all day for £5 each between 10am and 5pm

Bank Holiday Open Day

Looking for a day out for Bank Holiday Monday? Pop down to the Runway Visitor Park and hopefully soak up a bit of sun whilst watching some of the 700 plus flights due to take off and land over the day.
There is a play area, children's rides and lots of space for the kids to run off any excess energy.
We will have four aircraft open to view free of charge. You can also walk through the Concorde hangar to look at the world’s most iconic aeroplane.
There will also be a display of Prestige classic cars to admire and dream about.
Concorde short tours are available throughout the day. The cost is £6.00 per person.

School Tours

Looking for somewhere different to bring your class or out of school group?

The Education Team here at the Runway Visitor Park offer a variety of tours suited to different age groups and abilities, our visitors taking part in our education tours have the opportunity to board real aircraft, whilst learning about the different job roles that help ensure the airport runs smoothly. Not to forget everyone’s favourite part - hopping into the pilot’s seat.

Runway Visitor Park has breath-taking views across both runways, so you can watch the awesome A380 land into Manchester, or spot the private jets as they taxi for take-off!
