ABOUT THE MUSEUM

The Avro Heritage Museum preserves the legacy of Alliott Verdon-Roe and his company A.V. Roe & Co (Avro). Located on the former Woodford Aerodrome near Stockport in Cheshire, the site saw the production of famous aircraft including the Lancaster, Vulcan, Nimrod and BAe 146.

The Avro Heritage Museum is packed with fascinating exhibits and is home to the only example of an all-white Vulcan bomber. There is a whole host of activities on offer at the Museum including cockpit tours and the chance to hunt submarines on a genuine Nimrod tactical station. Visitors can even have a go at flying a Vulcan on our flight simulator, or embarking on a WWII bombing raid with our state of the art virtual reality suite.

 

The Museum also has a café on site which offers light refreshments and fantastic views of the mighty Vulcan bomber as it stands proudly outside.

The Museum is entirely self-funded, relying on admission fees as its main source of income and staffed by passionate volunteers, many of whom worked at Chadderton and Woodford.
