Standard Education

Looking for somewhere different to bring your class or out of school group?
The Education Team here at the Runway Visitor Park offer a variety of tours suited to different age groups and abilities, our visitors taking part in our education tours 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, so you can watch the awesome A380 land into Manchester, or spot the private jets as they taxi for take-off!
