Travelling to the Air Show by Car
Royal Air Force Cosford is easy to find by road, it is located just off the A41, approximately 1 mile south of junction 3 of the M54.

If you wish to use Satellite Navigation to find your way to the Air Show, please use the postcode TF11 8UP, but do follow the air show direction signs as you approach the airfield as there will be a local traffic plan in place.

Car parking is on grass, although there are a limited number of spaces on hard standing reserved for disabled drivers. For more information regarding disabled parking please visit the ‘Accessibility’ page.

If you wish to travel by bike or motorbike, there is a dedicated parking area. You will be directed to this on your arrival.
For up-to-date traffic and travel information on the day, tune into Radio Cosford on 87.9MHz


                Taxis and dropping off 

Travelling to the Air Show in a taxi or any service where you expect to be dropped off is not advised as the roads into the show become a one-way system and vehicles are unable to turn around and leave until the police reverse the traffic flow which is usually after lunchtime. Please find alternative means of travel.


                Off Base Car Parking

There is a limited amount of off base car parking to the North East of the airfield. Our traffic management team will adapt to the conditions and flows on the day, so we can never guarantee where cars will be parked. However, the majority of vehicles coming from the East and South will be on base, and those coming from the West and North will be equally split between on and off base.
Please note that those parked in the off base car park are likely to benefit from a speedier entry and exit than those on base.

 


                Arriving through Gate 4

Gate 4 (off the A464) will only be open until approximately 10:30 during the inbound phase, and will not open again until approximately 1800 once the flying display has finished. All vehicles arriving through Gate 4 will be parked on base. If you need to leave the event before 1800, you must make your way to Gate 2. Please expect some delays if you do need to do this.

 

 



Travelling to the Air Show by Rail
The RAF Cosford Air Show is highly accessible by rail. There is a comprehensive network surrounding us and Cosford station is adjacent to the airfield only two hundred metres from all of the action.

We are currently working with the three train operators that service the Cosford station to ensure that we provide as much rail capacity as we can on the day. On Air Show day additional train services will be operating to and from Cosford and full details can be found in the special air show timetable which will be available here shortly.

Please remember that accompanied under 16s have free entry to the Air Show so you will only need to buy their travel ticket.
