See the last operating Vulcan bomber in flight

Robin Hood Airport, South Yorkshire

Aviation fans won’t want to miss the Vulcan Experience, a chance to see the world’s last flying Vulcan bomber, here at its original home.

The last operational Vulcan bomber in the world, XH558, is based at Doncaster’s Robin Hood Airport. This was its original home, when the airport was Royal Air Force Station Finningley. 

Take a Vulcan Experience tour of the original Second World War hangar for the rare chance to get up close to this iconic British aircraft. Stand underneath the open bomb bay doors, which were designed to release an atomic bomb during the dark days of the Cold War.

Tours can often coincide with engineering activity, giving visitors an insight into how this great jet is maintained. The gift shop is also a haven for aviation and history fans. There’s even a bar selling Vulcan Bomber ale.

Doncaster is in the North of England, 1 hour 35 minutes from London by rail.
