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.
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.
The RAF Cosford Air Show is accessible by rail and Cosford station is adjacent to the airfield, only two hundred metres from the action. However, we expect train services and the station itself to be extremely busy on Air Show day, and queue systems will be in place to help keep passengers moving as safely and efficiently as possible. We advise visitors to allow extra time for their journey and to check train times before travelling. Staff will be on hand to help you at the station, so please be patient.
Please note, Cosford station does not have disabled access.
If you wish to travel by motorbike, there is a dedicated parking area. You will be directed to this on your arrival.
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 either disembark on the A41 and walk the last 500 yards down or find alternative means of travel.
Travelling by coach is an affordable and easy way to travel to the RAF Cosford Air Show. We have formed partnerships with a variety of group travel organisers and coach operators across the country. There are some exclusive prices and discounts that may be available from your local provider.
There is a park and fly helicopter shuttle from Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green Airport to the Air Show. To book, click here.
