Here’s a half-term treat for families – free entry to The Scramble Experience for accompanied children.
With schools set to close for a week this Friday (9 Feb), the Trust is making it cheaper for families to visit The Scramble Experience as part of a fantastic day out during half term.
The Memorial and the site at Capel-le-Ferne are always free, but for next week only, children who are accompanied by a paid adult will be able to visit the exciting extra attractions in The Scramble Experience for free, too.
There is lots of hands-on, interactive fun on offer, with our new Hurricane exhibit offering families a chance to compete to see who is the ultimate fighter pilot. This free attraction literally puts visitors in the hot seat, allowing them to shoot down Luftwaffe aircraft from a replica Hurricane cockpit.
While the emphasis is on excitement, there is also a wealth of information about the Battle of Britain to be discovered, while the rest of the site also has much to explore, including full-sized replicas of a Spitfire and Hurricane.
A first-floor café with unbeatable views across the Channel to France (if the weather allows) offers a range of hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, cakes and snacks, while the gift shop offers everything from pocket money souvenirs to collectors’ items signed by members of the Few.
The Wing, which houses The Scramble Experience, and the car park are currently open from 10am to 4pm daily. The site itself is always open to pedestrians. The half-term offer runs until Sunday 18 February.
