2019 RAF Air Tattoo Fairford

Post by Roger G on Thu Jan 24, 2019 2:41 pm

Just wondering if anyone is going and where to put the MH. I just looked at the Airshow campsite and to stay for the Saturday and Sunday for 2 of us with admission to the show, it will cost the best part of £350!! The campsite alone for 2 nights, on a field with no EHU works out at £140. That's daylight robbery!!

Most nearby campsites seem to be booked up already and I can find nothing relating to it on the C&C or C&MH club websites. Has anyone got any more info?

Try Fairford FC they have a web site. We have already booked as it uses a small field for caravans and MH. Best to book sooner than later. There is no EHU but a club site with entertainment and food etc. We have been going for 10 years its OK. Campers can use the club facilties such as toilets and showers.

Thanks guys, I'll have a look at both of those today.

I also had an email back from the organisers to say that I can park the MH in the free car park as part of the admission fee, so a site further away for overnight looks very workable.

Try and get a site as close as possible. The queues on the roads can become long

We have just booked in to the Football Club site for the Friday and Saturday Nights, so may well see you there  smile! Apparently they have facilities on show week for an extra 21 caravans/motor homes and 100 tents, so at £25 per pitch per night is a good price compared with the £40 per head per night on the official RIAT field.

We are also taking our bikes, so will cycle down on the Friday evening to check out where the car parks are for easiest access.

You don't need to check . The road to the access road down to the show through the village is closed to through traffic. So it's easy from the football club..

I suppose you can stay at the FC and watch most of the show from there

I suppose you could see much of the flying from the football club, but part of the fun of the day will be the atmosphere and noise, the concession stands and of course getting up close to the planes and pilots on the ground. I also like to pay for admission as it is hugely expensive to put on these shows and I am quite happy to contribute the admission fee to that, but not the ridiculous camping field charges.

The site is surrounded by trees a d you only see the planes regrouping over the football ground .you don't see the full display. If you arrive on the Friday you do see the practice flights from the club house
