Expert review of National Museum of Flight
East Fortune Airfield, only 20 miles east of Edinburgh, is the setting for this brilliant museum for all ages. An actual Concorde sits in one of the massive exhibition hangars as do many other aircraft. The chance to see them up close is quite awe-inspiring and nostalgic too. War memorabilia, personal stories, film, photographs and paraphenalia associated with this fasincating world are all here.
They have an annual airshow every July which, if your timing works, is well worth attending.
The parachute café offers great snacks too.
Adults £9, concessions £7, children under 12 get in for free, as do members of National Museums Scotland.
