A Natural Grandstand for the Fairford Air Tattoo
Friday 19th - Sunday 21st July, 2013
Only £10.00 per Car per Day
Have you ever wondered if there was a place from where you could watch the Royal International Air Tattoo without actually having to spend the day on the airfield, which is great fun but can be expensive and noisy?
Come to our Park and View car park in our field at Furzey Hill, and we will give you a day to remember. We are just over half a mile from the edge of the airfield, on a hill overlooking the runway. We have the best view, even better than any view you could get from the grandstand, as the aeroplanes actually choose to fly over us as this is not a built up area. Furzey Hill farmhouse dates back to the middle of the 17th century. You will find us situated just north of the runway between Fairford and Meysey Hampton at GL7 5LD. Using this in some sat. nav. systems will take you to our neighbour so see our (map and directions from A417).
You can either choose to spend the day in our beautiful grassy field and watch the show from our own natural grandstand, or you can walk down to the edge of the runway and watch from the perimeter fence (about five minutes). Many of the displays actually centre themselves on our house, and one of the most thrilling experiences is watching the Red Arrows come up as if from nowhere over the back of the house. A few years ago they created a red love heart, with their coloured exhaust smoke, with Furzey Hill house appearing in the centre of it. Our family has been running the event now for 6 years and each is better and more popular than the one before.
We provide hot and cold drinks, cold running water, a varied menu of snacks, including freshly made bacon butties, home made cakes and biscuits and much more. We also provide toilet facilities. Families are very welcome. Children enjoy playing in the field and small children often enjoy the day more than they would on the airfield where they might be intimidated by the noise level. We park the cars ensuring there is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy their own space safely.
AS WE DON’T RUN A BOOKING SYSTEM, DO COME IN GOOD TIME AS WE HAVE MANY LOYAL CUSTOMERS WHO RETURN YEAR AFTER YEAR AND WE DO TEND TO FILL UP QUITE QUICKLY. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!
