This working WW1 aerodrome is a great half day out just south east of Chelmsford. Not the easiest place to find but well worth the effort. It tells the story of the Royal Flying Corps, later the RAF and the history of the defence of London from German Zeppelin's and Goethe bombers. Latch on to a full tour or wait at one of the two hangers to tag on to a tour to see aircraft from the period. Good shop to get wristband for tearoom only (pink £0) or full access and tour (green max £8) running at 1100 & 1400 Fridays (other days/times available) and tearoom for cakes and sandwiches. Almost everyone on site is a volunteer! Check their website for special event days. This site is slowly being restored to its former glory. Your modest admission fee makes this possible.
It's a interesting and well presented place to go walk around. You can see the pride and care the people have put in the place. One can learn a lot there. And the food in the café was good as well. With lots of smiles everywhere.
