Ages: 4+

Venue type: Indoor

The Vulcan Experience gives you a chance to get up close to a plan that was one of 3 RAF V Bombers, designed to carry one of Britain's first atomic bombs to Russia if there was a Soviet nuclear attack!
This is just part of the fascinating history of the Vulcan XH558, the oldest complete Vulcan in the whole world and the last to leave RAF service.
Learn about the £7 million restorations of this plane that enabled it to fly again, 14 years after its last flight. The tour will also give you a chance to gain access to the underneath of the aircraft, plus time alone under the wings to take some photos.
You can also visit the plane in the hangar, which may give you a chance to see some interesting items as they work on her during the week.
The tours take about 25 minutes and give you a chance to speak to the aircrew and engineers involved with this project, plus a number of historic items and personal recollections that are on display.
