Manchester Airport's Runway Visitor Park gains VisitEngland stamp of approval

Manchester Airport's Runway Visitor Park attraction has gained official recognition as a tourist attraction by VisitEngland, the national tourist board.

The Park is located adjacent to the busy international airport's two runways and is home to a number of retired planes for visitors to tour and explore,including supersonic airliner, Concorde and a former RAF Nimrod military spy plane.

It attracts around 300,000 visitors every year and after an official assessment under the VAQAS scheme during the summer, it has earned the right to display VisitEngland’s red rose logo quality plaque.

Jeremy Brinkworth, Director of Business Development at VisitEngland, said: “The Runway Visitor Park is a great visitor attraction. Our assessor was particularly impressed by the range of facilities available and the enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff, who should congratulate themselves on this well-deserved accreditation.”
