Hayes Way
Patchway, BS34

Aerospace Bristol is a new industrial heritage museum and learning centre being developed at Filton, to the north of Bristol. It will tell the story of the region's world-class aerospace industry - past, present and future. The Aerospace Bristol project is being run by the Bristol Aero Collection Trust.

How to find us

The museum is located off junction 17 of the M5 and is easily accessible by car, coach and bicycle.

WHERE IS AEROSPACE BRISTOL?

The museum is located on the historic Filton Airfield, where every British Concorde made her maiden flight. You can enjoy free parking onsite and can find us at:

Our post code does not take you to the exact location of the museum, so we suggest you check Google Maps before setting out.

Also, please note that, as Aerospace Bristol is a brand new museum, we do not yet have brown road signs in place. We are working with the council to establish these as soon as possible and, in the meantime, temporary yellow and black signs are in use. If you are unfamiliar with the area then please do take a moment to check Google Maps to ensure your journey goes as smoothly as possible.
