Visitor information and COVID 19 safety

The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre is based on several acres of the old airfield of RAF East Kirkby.  By the very nature of the site there is a lot of open space outside and the main hangar is a spacious building with great air flow enabling us to open the Centre safely and with a friendly environment.

Visitor Numbers

Our site has a large capacity so there is no requirement to book a ticket in advance.  Our NHS app QR code will be available at the entrance for you to scan with your NHS app.

Car Parking

Our car park is free and we have a large car park for the permitted numbers on site during this period.  There is no booking required for the car park, just park up and make your way to the entrance.


How are we protecting you around the site?

Hand cleaning facilities

We have several hand sanitising stations around the site.  While on site we would encourage you to wash and sanitise your hands at all given opportunities both for your safety and others around you.


We have sneeze screens at our customer/staff interaction points and we request that those that can wear face coverings do so.

We have the facility take card payments at all of our tills so we would request that you use contactless card payments as much as possible.

We do have catering facilities open offering hot and cold drinks and pre-packaged food to allow you to eat anywhere outside on the site or in our Cafe. 

There is seating inside the NAAFI but there is also plenty of outdoor seating available.
