The Fleet Air Arm Museum represents the Royal Navy In the Air. With four exhibition halls, over ninety aircraft and over 2 million records and 30 thousand artefacts the Museum is Europe's largest naval aviation Museum. In addition it houses the first British Concorde which you can go on board, view the cockpit and visit the award winning Aircraft Carrier Experience

The Museum is near Yeovilton at HMS Heron, on the B3151 just off the A303 and A37 (Satnav Ref: BA22 8HW). From the M5 motorway, take junction 25 at Taunton. As this is so close to Bath, we will rely on cae share for transport
