Interesting exhibition but please resolve problem with disabled car parking
nov. 2021
Enjoyed the exhibitions of the aircraft and machinery. Also enjoyed the added individual stories associated with each exhibit. Two of the hangers weren't fully accessible due to filming on the day. Food at lunch wasn't particularly hot but tasted OK. Issue with car parking for disabled drivers: a friend parked in a designated parking space opposite the cafe, the only one available as the others had been covered by picnic tables.(see photo). After a while, a member of staff asked my friend to move his car as the area around the cafe was only for staff. The sign directing people to the alternative disabled parking simply pointed to a vague area at the edge of the car park. Why are disabled people stopped from parking in the designated spaces? Will covid be used as an excuse, I wonder?

Deeply disappointing
nov. 2021
I'm local to Old Warden, and before the pandemic I took my elderly parents to Shuttleworth on dozens of occasions, usually just for a trip around the Swiss Garden and a bite to eat in the cafe afterwards. We weren't interested in the air museum. I went there today, post pandemic, for the first time in 2 years, just for tea and a bite to eat in the cafe, as I used to do, and discovered that I'd need to pay an entry fee of £15 for the privilege.

Similarly, whereas the Swiss Garden could originally be accessed by itself for a fairly reasonable price, you now have to pay full whack, whether or not you want to visit the museum as well. As a result, I shan't be going there again, and I doubt if any of the other people who we used regularly to see on Saturdays and Sundays (the motorcycle club, for example), just popping in for something to eat and drink will be doing so either.

Seriously disappointing and a disservice not just to the local community but further afield too.

No longer free to use the cafe..?!
okt. 2021 • Venner
Wanted to drop in for lunch and coffee the other day to meet a friend, have been a visitor for many years and have arranged car club days etc here but had to find a different place. Unfortunately they now charge £15 for entry, even to the cafe high seems an unusual when compared with other similar attractions.

If you’ve never been before and would like to see the collection/house/garden etc then it’s worth the entrance fee. If you’re a local supporter (by buying food and drink) then you’re no longer made welcome here.

The Shuttleworth Collection is a quintessential English Aircraft Museum. A terrific variety of unique aircraft that a typical American visitor has only seen in books. Many, if not most of the aircraft are airworthy. They have regularly scheduled flying days. The cafe on the field is excellent. A must-see for any aviation enthusiast.

A great informative day out with a superb collection to view.
okt. 2021
Went today with my Father & Brother - In -law as have heard so much about this collection. After taking a short detour due to the Sat Nav taking me to old gate entrance everything else went fine. I would say a better sign at the entrance should be on display as even the new entrance we drove by once and had to turn around. We paid £15 each for our Adult tickets and purchased on-line in advance.

There is ample parking adjacent to the museum and I did see a golf type buggy ferrying some people to the first hangar. The hangars are superb with so much to see and experience in each one. The flow through each hangar is perfect and each exhibit Aircraft/Car/Bike has a great informative plaque explaining the history of the item you are looking at. We loved that the museum really concentrates on all early aircraft up to and inclusive of the second world war and up to the fifties. All the displays are of a very high standard and viewing all they have on display can take quite a few hours. We all thought we had seen most aircraft but some on display including pictures totally baffled us.

Unlike other reviews of the café we really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the Cornish Pasties, Sausage rolls and cups of tea and didn't find the prices to unreasonable. We paid £15 for all our food and drinks combined. Having said that you will never please everyone all the time but we genuinely thoroughly enjoyed our visit to both the museum and café and would highly recommend both.

Extremely poor catering
sep. 2021 • Venner
My son and I visited as part of a Bond day to celebrate 30 years of the live and let die movie which featured the autogyro little Nellie

One was encouraged to bring an Aston Martin car ( if you had one ! ) and in addition to numerous Aston Martin Car’s a fly in of various autogyros took place

The presentation in the hangers of the various vintage and classic aircraft including some cars and vintage buses could not be faulted

The autogyro’s were good also except one could not walk around them and there was no information regarding their workings and clubs etc

However the catering was awful. The breakfast ( priced £10) of a little breakfast consisted of some scrambled egg which had seen better days, 1 rasher of bacon, 1 sausage and a small spoon of beans and a slice of ordinary bread lightly toasted All of this was semi warm

The only thing which was not ruined was the coffee which really nobody could have ruined as in todays world the preparation only involves presssing a few buttons on a coffee machine

The whole of the catering side was run by inexperienced very young people who I must say did their best but clearly the whole operation was not properly managed by senior experienced staff

This really put a downer on the day as if the catering etc was spot on I would give this 5 stars

I advise you to bring your own food

Shuttleworth Cafe
des. 2020
Used to enjoy going to the cafe for a full breakfast over the years particularly on my motorcycle and meeting other motorcyclists but it all stopped this year (2021) when they introduced a £15 admission fee admittedly for access to full site which you may not need if you're a local and seen it all before, i remember paying to go round the hangers before which you don't mind but £15 to get breakfast and coffee is a big no from me.
