Touching the last remaining part of a Sea Hornet was very special
As a Hertfordshire lad by birth, I should have known about this place years ago. But glad I’ve found it now. Many have described it as a ‘Gem’ and it really is. It’s so important that the memory and history of the great De Havilland organisation is remembered and passed on to future generations.
I especially liked the planes you could go into which showed how people used to travel by air!! There are lots of curators around who are only too pleased to give information on the history of the various exhibits. Well worth the entrance fee!
You can see the aircraft being restored and interesting exhibits.
We had a lovely day out. We really enjoyed all of the brilliant exhibits!
Ease of access to exhibits, so many aircraft open. Very relaxed atmosphere and great quality of information.
I liked the Horsa Glider and ability to go into cockpits
Amazing seeing all the history and the workmanship that goes into the restoration of all the planes. It really is a hands on experience and the volunteers really make this place special. Definitely will return when the new hangar is finished.
If you are interested in the history of aviation in the UK then this is an absolute must visit place. It follows the history of the Dr Havilland family’s passion for flying developing into manufacturing their own airplanes.
We had a great visit and the kids really loved getting in the planes!
