Visit the Vulcan Days 2018

Sunday, 22 April, 2018 - 10:00 to Sunday, 16 September, 2018 - 16:00

Our Visit the Vulcan Days are a great opportunity to get ‘up close and personal’ with Vulcan XL426 at London Southend Airport.

We will be holding four Visit the Vulcan Days at Hangar 6, London Southend Airport, in 2018.
The dates are:
22 April
17 June (Fathers’ Day)
19 August
16 September

Our Visit the Vulcan Days are great days out for aircraft enthusiasts and the general public alike. The VRT Team will be on hand to give guided tours of Vulcan XL426 and for an additional fee you can climb inside the Vulcan’s cockpit.

Doors open at 10.00 a.m. on each day with last admission at 4.00 p.m.

General admission will be £5.00 for adults with accompanied under-16s admitted FREE. Admission allows you entry to the hangar to see the Vulcan and other exhibits, take a guided tour if you wish and take photographs. An additional fee will apply per person for a tour of XL426's cockpit.

Entry to the hangar and cockpit is free for Vulcan Restoration Trust members.

Admission and cockpit tickets will only be on sale ‘at the door’ on the day of each event – please note that there are no advance ticket sales.

Cockpit visits take place every 15 minutes and are done on a timed ticket basis, so there is no need to stand and queue. Space is limited so cockpit visit tickets are subject to availability. When they’re gone, they’re gone!

Car parking will be available a short walk from the Vulcan’s hangar. If you are travelling by train, London Southend Airport station is approximately 10 minutes walk from the Vulcan. The station is served by frequent trains on the London Liverpool Street to Southend Victoria line.

Details of train times and local bus services can be found on the London Southend Airport website: Southend Airport

Our souvenir stand will be open at each Visit the Vulcan Day selling a selection of Vulcan souvenirs, including Vulcan models, badges, patches, postcards, books, and much more. Hot and cold snacks and drinks will also be on sale.

Sorry – due to airport rules, we regret that no pets can be admitted with the exception of assistance dogs.
