On behalf of the Airport Management, Friends of Barton Aerodrome can arrange tours of the Airfield. The tour would be aimed at the specific needs of the group visiting. We are able to handle groups from schools, clubs, groups, avaiation enthusiasts and family groups.

Because of Airport operations on the day, and also the size of the group, we cannot guarantee that all parts of the Aerodrome will be visited but we will always try to include parts that would be interesting to the group. Areas visited on a tour could include at least some of the aircraft hangars, airport Rescue & Fire Service, main aircraft apron, aircraft refueling facilties and the Control Tower.

Please note that for a person to attend an organised tour they must be aged 8 or above. Generally, tours are for a maximum of 24 people, if you have a large group please contact us and we can review possible options. Normally a fee of £2.00 per head is charged with a minimum total of £10.00 per tour. You are able to pay on the day of the tour based on the actual number on the tour.

Please note that all our Tour Guides are DBS checked.

Ideally, we request that you give at least 6 weeks notice for any tour and we will be in touch within a few days of a request to arrange your booking.
