Visit the Vulcan Day

London Southend Airport
10.00 am to 4.00 pm

See former Royal Air Force bomber Avro Vulcan XL426 up close in its hangar at our first Visit the Vulcan Day of the year. You can walk round the Vulcan and for an additional fee you can climb inside for a guided tour of the cockpit.

As well as the Vulcan, there will be much to keep everyone entertained. There will be examples of the weapons carried by the Vulcan during its time with the RAF, including examples of the type of 1,000 lb high explosive bomb the Vulcan dropped on Port Stanley airfield during the 1982 Falklands Conflict.

Vulcan XL426 will be joined by other exhibits, including displays of military vehicles, making it a great time out for the whole family. Please check back for details.

Refreshments will be on sale throughout the day and our Hangar Shop will be open selling a selection of Vulcan souvenirs, including models, badges, patches, postcards, books and much more.

General admission is £8.00 for adults with under-16s admitted FREE. Tickets will be on sale on the gate and are also available to buy in advance should you wish. There is no need to buy advance tickets for under-16s.

Cockpit visits are an additional £8.00 per person applicable to both adults and under-16s.
