Visiting the Show

The Aviation Extravaganza that is the Air Tattoo!

In 2019, we returned to our previous well-loved format with Friday being a preview day. The Green Zone was not accessible as aircraft were still arriving and parking there.


On Saturday and Sunday, the showground was open for twelve hours for you to enjoy our attractions. You could visit the Techno Zone©, the RAF Experience or the Vintage Village plus much more. Visitors were also kept entertained with an eight and a half-hour flying display.

There was free entry for accompanied under-18s like in 2018, and also free parking. The Air Tattoo offers a great value for money day out for all the family.
