East Midlands Aeropark

Whether you are a plane spotter, a fan of old aircraft, or you are interested in aircraft restoration, East Midlands Aeropark is an interesting visit out for the whole family.
Located just a 20 minute drive away from Littleover Lodge the aeropark is situated right on the edge of East Midlands Airport.
East Midlands Aeropark boasts a number of permanent exhibitions, alongside occasional events and also restoration projects. With around 27 outside exhibitions, there are also a number of engines inside the hanger for you to have a look at. Classic aircraft include the De Havilland Vampire and the Avro Vulcan, so if you know your aircraft, you’ll know there’s some gems there!
While you’re having a wonder around the aircraft that the aeropark has onsite, keep your eyes peeled to see what’s leaving the airport too! You can even perch yourselves on one of the two mounds that they have onsite which make for a perfect viewing platform. One mound is located just north of the east/west runway, letting your feel close to the action. While the other mound is just high enough to clear the airport perimeter, allowing for a clear view and an ideal photography opportunity.
Once you’ve been swept away by the aircraft (both overhead and static!) you’ll want to head back over to the Littleover Lodge for a great meal from our selection of menus.
