The Fleet Air Arm Museum launches discount scheme for local residents to get more from what's on their doorstep . Up to £15 savings on family tickets at one of the south west's leading visitor attraction. Local residents with Dorchester, Taunton and Bath postcodes special discount to support what's on their doorstep
Discounted limitless days out for a year are now possible for residents with Dorchester, Taunton and Bath postcodes as one of the region's most popular museums launches a special winter-long offer with up to £15 savings on an annual family ticket from November 14th 2022 – March 31st 2023.
Set amongst four vast aircraft and exhibition halls, with lots of space to explore, the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum is home to Europe's largest naval aviation collection.
With free car parking, a hugely popular playground area and newly-refurbished café, the museum is a real favourite with locals. There is a fascinating view across the busy air station RNAS Yeovilton where daily operations can be watched from a distance. One of the highlights of the day is the chance to walk under the Delta Wings of Concorde 002, the first British prototype, and marvel at the technology which enabled aircraft to fly at more than twice the speed of sound.
New this year is the refurbished immersive Carrier Experience where visitors have the chance to see 'the best of the best', journeying from past to present and exploring experiences of the 'Top Gun' naval aviation teams over the past 100 years.
Highlights include aircraft from the 1940s and 50s like the sole-surviving examples of a Westland Wyvern and Supermarine Attacker aircraft, also a Sopwith Pup, the first aircraft type to land on board a moving ship in 1917.
General Manager Marc Farrance said:
"We're issuing a rallying call for all local residents to become ambassadors for what's on their doorstep. Visit with friends and family and see what makes the Fleet Air Arm Museum one of the must-see destinations in the south west. Many of our local community work and volunteer in our wonderful museum and given it's been a tough 18 months it has been brilliant to see the support of so many visitors coming through our gates. However, we are about to face a tough winter period and really do need as many people to visit and support our incredible museum with this fantastic offer."
To benefit from the offer, just walk up to the museum with valid proof of address.
All tickets give 12 months entry to the museum. This offer cannot be redeemed online or in conjunction with other discounts, it also does not apply to other ticketed events. Available until 31 March 2023.
