Viewing Village

This value for money enclosure provides a choice of two brilliant viewing options at the Air Tattoo and is very popular with many of our visitors.

Treat yourself to a seat in the Grandstand or opt for a chair in the Garden, both with fantastic views of the thrilling flying display. This is a great spot for photographers looking to get the perfect shot.

The Viewing Village includes features such as private toilets, cash catering outlets serving a variety of food and drink and a left luggage facility at the entrance. This makes the Viewing Village a great location, both to create a base from which to explore the showground, and to watch the flying display.

The Viewing Village includes:

  • Either a Premium or Standard seat in the Grandstand. If you would like to book a Grandstand seat you can view the seating plan here.
  • Or an unreserved Garden seat (plastic garden chairs). Every ticket holder is entitled to a chair, so please ask one of the volunteer enclosure team if you cannot find one
