Merlin Engine Demonstration

06 August - 07 August 2022

The Rolls-Royce Merlin engine was used in many of the famous fighter aircraft during the Second World War – most notably, the Supermarine Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane.

Join us to hear the engine roar on our ‘airfield’ this summer. The engine will be on display and will do 4 engine runs a day. It’s loud, windy and great fun!

Join us at 10.30am, 12.30pm, 2.30pm and 4.30pm to hear and see the Merlin Engine. All you need to do is book your free admission ticket. To book your admission ticket click here. 

Please note, the Merlin Engine demonstration lasts for 10-15 minutes and it will be very loud. The Merlin will be within a fenced area and you will be at least 10 meters away from it at all times.
