Pimm's Flight Deck

Situated on the crowdline at the far eastern end of the showground, just 100 metres from the runway, you get a perfect view of the aircraft as they take off and display overhead. Director's chair seating with a picnic style lunch is also provided, along with a cash bar and refreshments available to purchase throughout the day.

This really is an excellent way to enjoy the show in true British style! Following customer feedback, we have added a photographer's area to the enclosure.

Please be aware that in the unlikely event that the wind direction changes, aircraft may have to take off and land from the other end of the runway.

The Pimm's Flight Deck includes:

  • Private garden*
  • Picnic style lunch served from 11.00am until 3.00pm
  • Any time gelato
  • Individual director's chairs
  • Sheltered area
  • Pay bar and cafe
  • Private toilets
  • Crowdline location

All services are situated at the rear of the enclosure to avoid obstructing your view of the flying display.

Please note. Children aged 5 and over require a ticket for the Pimm's Flight Deck Enclosure, children under 5 are free as long as they do not occupy a seat or require an inclusive lunch.

Access to the Pimm's Flight Deck is across grass, so those with restricted mobility should bear this in mind when booking.

*Please be aware that the grass length in the enclosure may be longer than experienced in previous years (at least 7 inches). The reasoning behind this is due to the need to improve the effectiveness of our bird deterrence and in-turn reduce the chances of bird-strikes. Short grass is attractive to birds so the adoption of a long-grass regime is a very effective airfield bird deterrent. It spoils their habitat by restricting their vision at ground level, thus reducing their security, and also by considerably restricting their access to food sources in the soil.
