Access the Avro Vulcan

27 December 2016 - 28 November 2017

Avro Vulcan


Climb into the magnificent Avro Vulcan in 2017 and witness the interior - a rare opportunity for any Vulcan fan.

Your experience will last 15 minutes. Once you have arrived a member of the museum team will talk you through the access before you ascend the first ladder. Once inside the crew area you will have the opportunity to take photos and ask as many questions as you like. After this, if you are able, you will climb the last ladder which leads you into the cockpit where you will take the pilots seat.

Participant comments:

"I just wanted to say what a great event the Vulcan Open Cockpits was on Tuesday. The aircraft team made the difference between it being good and it being excellent, and the whole event went beyond our expectations."

James Edensor, Vulcan Access Participant
