What’s Here

This huge holiday theme park is located close to RNAS Culdrose. Centered on a recreation of a Victorian village, a number of other attractions can be found here include a Blitzed wartime street in Britain, a science centre and a small collection of aircraft. Formerly known as the Cornwall Aero Park, the aircraft collection here has been mostly gathered from local Fleet Air Arm bases. Views of operations at nearby RNAS Culdrose can be easily obtained.


Signed off the A3083 Helston to Lizard road, south of Helston, alongside RNAS Culdrose, Cornwall.
