Museum of Army Flying

Museum of Army Flying

Located inside an aircraft hangar adjacent to the Middle Wallop airfield - the Museum of Army Flying is a great day out for visitors of all ages.

The Middle Wallop airfield is home to the Army Air Corp and has a rich history in aviation. The museum covers the one hundred years of flying history that the British Army has been involved in. From Balloon sections of the Royal Engineers to Air Observation Post squadrons, and from the Glider Pilot Regiments to bomber squadrons and helicopters - there is plenty for everyone. The museum also has an indoor play space and an outdoor play park to keep little ones amused.

If you are planning on visiting the Museum of Army Flying please check their website for the latest details of opening times and entry prices. We also recommend you pay a visit to the Apache Café for which you don’t need an entry ticket to the museum in order to pop in and enjoy a good selection of cakes and local produce – and indeed from here you also get an excellent view across the airfield and you may get to see some aircraft take off or land.

Where to Stay

If you are planning on visiting the Museum of Army Flying and looking for accommodation, the Holiday Inn Salisbury-Stonehenge is an excellent option and just 12 miles away. With a wide range of room types to choose from including four fully accessible rooms, there is something to suit everyone. Plus with the excellent Solstice Bar & Grill on site - you won’t need to go far for some top notch refreshments!
