Runway Visitor Park - Education & Learning


Located at the end of the busy Manchester Airport runway, Runway Visitor Park is a unique visitor attraction creating a fun and educational experience for all ages.

Established in 2005, the Education Centre at Runway Visitor Park still continues to educate & inspire. In 2016 alone 14,500 pupils took part in our Educational Tours.

The interactive nature of our tours is what truly brings them to life. Visitors taking part have the opportunity to board real aircraft, whilst learning about the different job roles that help ensure the airport runs smoothly. Not to forget everyone’s favourite part - hopping into the pilot’s seat.

Runway Visitor Park has breath-taking views across both runways. Watch the awesome A380 land into Manchester, or spot the private jets as they taxi for take off!
