Airside Tours


Would you consider yourself to be and ‘Aviation Enthusiast’ or a ‘Plane Spotter’? Do you have an interest in World War 2 airfields or Soviet era aircraft? Then a tour at Aviation Park is just the thing for you.

We have a wide selection of business jets and light aircraft that you can get up close to while your guide gives you the history of Hawarden Airfield and its ongoing operations today. We also have a unique selection of Soviet era aircraft including Antanov An-2’s and a MiG 27.

This tour is completely free to book and you will be provided with a tour pack that you can take away with you as memento of your day.

We will never charge anyone for an airside tour, but I’m sure you can appreciate the time and effort that goes into arranging a tour by our staff. So we respectfully request that you make a donation to one of the two following charities.
