Supersonic Attractions

Due to open this autumn, the £19 million Aerospace Bristol heritage attraction has taken the wraps off its star attraction.

Concorde 216, the last of the supersonic passenger jets to be built and the last to fly, has been cocooned in protective film while her new purpose-built hanger was constructed, but is now fully revealed and ready to welcome her first visitors on board.

Groups will also be able to walk under the aircraft’s wings and take photographs from the Concorde balcony.

Based on the city’s former Filton Airfield, Aerospace Bristol also includes two refurbished World War One aircraft hangars that will allow visitors to explore more than 100 years of British aviation industry – from Boxkite biplanes and the pioneers of early aviation, through two world wars and the drama of the space race to current technology and future possibilities.

The attraction will offer discounted group rates, guided tours and free coach parking. Interested parties can contact groups@aerospacebristol.org
