Manchester Airport Aviation Viewing Park ... Concorde to go on public display in the UK and is the most centrally located and easily accessible. The park is situated on the A538, between Junction 6 of the M56 motorway and the airport tunnels. Turn down Sunbank Lane, by The Romper public house, then right onto Wilmslow Old Road and follow to the end.
Newest Review: ... and apart from that there are no seats apart from inside the restaurant area - some people had taken their own chairs which might be a good idea unless you don't mind standing for a while. Another thing is that the viewing areas are completed uncovered - we were lucky that the weather was sunny but I wouldn't like to visit in the rain or when it was very cold. One thing I would note though ... more

We decided that we wanted to spend our bank holiday doing something a bit different, not the boring old shopping as we usually do. We visited the Runway viewing park at Manchester airport because we love going on our holidays and on planes, we just never seem to watch them take off and land! Costs The viewing park is free to enter, although there is a car parking charge of £3 per hour for a maximum of four hours - then the charge stays at £12 for the day for any time longer. It seemed quite expensive at first, but there is no admission charge for the park itself so I looked at it as being £1 per person for the hour's stay we had as the charge is per car. ...

The viewing park at Manchester airport is now a rarity among airports in England, most airports have closed their viewing areas due to security concerns. However Manchester has gone against this trend and recently expanded and updated this facility. Which I personally think is fantastic! First off all, to get to it, you do not go the main airport terminals, it is located well away from the main buildings and in an area behind the cargo terminals at the side of the runway. (Leave the M56 signposted freight terminal (not the main airport junction) and then you pick up signs for the aviation viewing park and concorde - it's less than 5 mins down the road) ...

The wife (vickitoria10) is obsessed with going on holiday and as an extension to this, she is obsessed with planes and also with airports. And so, whenever we're over in Manchester, she always wants me to take her to the Manchester Airport Aviation Viewing Park, and with me being a good husband, I regrettably do so. There's no prizes for guessing that the viewing park is right next to Manchester Airport, but you may not know that it's the only airport viewing park left in the country (or so the wife tells me, in a vain attempt to get me excited about our visit). The park consists of a car park, some grass, a couple of viewing platforms and literally ... Read the complete review

We live half an hour away from Manchester Airport and we go to a farm shop near there called Nixons which sells fresh meat, and so sometimes on a nice clear day we will go to Manchester airport aviation viewing park. I hadn't really ever seen a plane taking off apart from when I had been on them...and so when my husband first took me I was really excited, especially when there was an emergency with on of the private planes with fire engines and police cars around it...! Lol. It costs £5 for your car and driver, then £2 for every additional passenger...this has gone up recently as it used to be £1 for additional drivers, and most of the people will ...
