Manchester Airport Aviation Viewing Park Reviews
Newest Review: ... for you to stand on to get a better view of the runway, these also have telescopes you can pay for on them, I've never felt the need to use them though! These raised areas are fantastic as it means you can take photos without looking through a wire fence. In between the platforms is a reasonable sized grass area with some picnic benches, of course you can bring your own chairs and rugs etc with you! The old portacabin snack bar and shop have now gone and been are now incorporated into the new building. The new features: First of all anyone who has been in the last few years will notice that Concorde has been moved. It is no longer in th... more

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 ...

The Manchester Airport Aviation Viewing Park is ideal for Plane enthusiasts of all kinds, in my case as I work in Travel specifically the Aviation field my interest is seeing the various Airlines operated from Manchester and for my partner as he builds Aircraft he is interested in the actual aircraft taking of from Manchester so overall it is ideal for all people that enjoy a trip to the Airport. I must warn you though that if you do decide to comment on the plane or airline you may be launched upon by the Plane spotters that regularly make the trip out to the aviation field armed with walkie talkies and binoculars not to mention the wide lens paparazzi cameras that ...
