Royal Air Force Museum London Reviews
путешествуя в Европу, с удовольствием выбираю эту компанию, несмотря на стыковку. Пересадка очень удобная в аэропорту Риги. Демократична по ценам и интеллигентная по сервису more »traveling to Europe, i love to choose this company, despite the docking. The transfer is very convenient at Riga airport. Democratic in price and intelligent on service

Its former hangars house a magnificent collection of aircraft that trace the history of world aviation with beautiful examples of British aircraft. The WW2 part is particularly impressive. Lunch is possible in the old Mess.
Beyond spectacular, really. Such a dramatically-special place it's hard to believe! One needs to experience this to understand the unique value that has been created with the latest re-vamp. Staff are truly amazing & fully dedicated to this critical, historical, wonderful attraction. Do not miss this, guys ... go! Give yourself at least half a day - it's huge. Take a decent camera with you, as well. Enjoy!
A real experience I would totally recommend you take the time and visit. Unfortunately the restaurant I use there wasn't that good it was okay possibly recommend a picnic. The restaurant some years ago was completely different and much better seems to have lost that. The gift shop could be a lot better room for improvement in that section. But the museum itself I would totally recommend you visit I'm sure the experience you will receive will be worth the time you've taken to get there.
