Over the course of more than a century, Filton helped shape the state of British aviation as we know it today.
Aerospace Bristol celebrates the impact that this place has had, and you’ll be blown away by the aircraft and exhibits here.
The highlight of it all is the Concorde.
You’ll get to step on board Concorde Alpha Foxtrot, the last Concorde that was ever built or flown. These were the world’s fastest passenger jets, and you’ll hear all about their amazing story as you explore it.
There’s also the Conservation in Action Workshop, where you can watch as workers restore some of the most beautiful planes from history in a genuine aircraft hangar from World War One.
Planes being worked on here include the massive Bristol Freighter and the nimble Bristol Fighter. As you watch them being returned to their prime, try and imagine what they must have looked like back in the day, protecting the skies of Britain.
Blast off into amazing aviation history
During your journey around Aerospace Bristol, you’ll travel through history, beginning in the early 20th century when mankind first discovered flight.
You’ll have the chance to check out some early planes, including some that were used in the first and second World Wars.
You’ll then leap forward in time to learn all about the incredible space race that occurred between some of the world’s most powerful countries, before returning to the modern age to discover the technology that powers aircraft we use today.
Relax, shop and play
After an exciting day of checking out all kinds of awesome aircraft, you can unwind at the café with a hot cuppa and an in-flight meal!
There’s also a fantastic gift shop full of aeronautic souvenirs, as well as a brilliant outdoor play area where you can let the kids loose. They’ll love boarding the spring-mounted planes and bouncing around like they’re blasting off.
With all the amazing aircrafts here, a trip to Aerospace Bristol is sure to lift you off your feet, and we promise you’ll be on cloud nine as you discover it all.
