Impressive Museum & Exhibitions
The name to this theme park was given to complement the old aircraft and to recapture scenes from the television drama “Flambards”.
Firstly, it was an aircraft museum without any rides. There were built old aircraft period rooms, such as a workshop, kitchen and nursery. These proved so popular that more period rooms, including a coach house and a shop – Birch, Birch and Co., Purveyors of High-Class provisions, and the Victorian Village were added.
Over the following winters, more shops and traders’ premises were added and the exhibition today has almost 60 shops and homes all set in genuine cobbled streets with carriages and costumes of the period. So, step back in time and visit lamp-lit village.
Or, move forward to 1941 and experience the dangers of Britain in the Blitz, a life-size re-creation of a World War II blitzed street opened by Dame Vera Lynn in 1984.
To cater for the growing number of visitors, family rides and amusements were added, together with many more exhibitions.
