Group visits - Cosford

We look forward to welcoming your group visit to Cosford.  An exciting display of aircraft and annual events programme means the Museum is popular for coach operators, groups and scout troops.  There is ample space on site for groups of all sizes and designated coach and mini bus parking which is free of charge.

During our initial reopening phase please remember to book your timed slot for your visit before completing the group booking form.

We will be reinstating our Group Visit Guided tours from 1 September, 2021 and can offer tours from 1 hour duration to a 5 hours (including lunch hour) Grand site tour. 

A choice of catering packages are available in the Airfield Kitchen.  Enjoy a two-course lunch or indulge in an afternoon tea of scones with jam and cream.  Coach drivers for pre-booked groups receive a voucher for a free main meal and drink during their visit to the Museum.

For those passing through on route, the Museum makes for an unusual and unique refreshment stop. With Free Admission and Free Coach parking, Cosford truly is an accessible location for that all important comfort break.

Wearing of Facemasks

Please note:

We strongly recommend that all visitors wear a face covering when visiting our galleries, shop and restaurant* unless they were previously exempt from doing so. You will not need to wear one when outside in our green spaces, unless it makes you more comfortable to do so. We would also ask that when in our buildings that our visitors be aware of others around them and where possible maintain a social distance of 1 metre.
