  • Fleet Air Arm Museum

Discover Europe’s largest collection of Royal Navy aircraft at the Fleet Air Arm Museum – an award-winning naval aviation museum at RNAS Yeovilton in Somerset. This is a great attraction no matter what the weather, great for families and there are immersive experiences and an outdoor play area.

There are more than 100 aircraft on display, including airships, seaplanes, World War II aircraft and the Concorde. Within the collection, there are 21 aircraft types that are totally unique in existence and cannot be seen anywhere else in the world. The Aircraft Carrier Experience is an award-winning attraction within the museum. You’ll ‘fly’ by helicopter to the replica flight deck of the HMS Ark Royal and take a tour round it passing fighter aircraft, the control room, the bridge and a nuclear bomb.

There is a licensed museum cafe, ample free parking and excellent disabled access. With more flights in and out of RNAS Yeovilton than any other military air station in Europe, you’re likely to see aircraft going through their rigorous training procedures. No dogs, other than assistance dogs are permitted into the museum. Book online to save 20% off the entry price.

What our guests say

  • Very peaceful Park

    The wildlife is stunning, we were visited by the ducks on a regular basis which was lovely. Our visit was very enjoyable and we will definitely be back in the future!

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough!

    This is simply our favorite touring park along the south coast. The location couldn't be better with views to die for and an abundance of fresh sea air. The park is spic and span and extremely well kept with very friendly staff.

  • Best holiday ever!

    This is by far the best Holiday Park I have been to. The views are breath taking with easy access to the beach and nice coastal walks to West Bay. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, then this is the place to come.

  • A little bit of heaven!

    Golden Cap is a little bit of heaven. The views are awesome, right next to the sea. It's all relaxed and low key just how we like it.

  • Fantastic Park

    10 out of 10 is not enough for this Holiday Park. We have been here 3 times and we love it more and more every time. The park has all you need, with some pitches overlooking the sea and a great restaurant.

  • Lovely tranquil campsite

    The location was great as we could easily walk to the village or local beaches through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend this campsite to families for a peaceful and safe stay.
