Official Spotting Locations
Other Spotting Locations
Holiday Inn Hotel
Next to the Airport, there is a bar on the top floor that is free to the public to sit and watch aircraft departures from the Terminals. Best to purchase a drink as not doing so will offend.
St Laurence and All Saints Church
Just off Aviation Way, with parking available on the road (not the Church Car Park), walk a short distance to the perimeter fence for a good view of depatures and arrivals. Security staff often patrol but are generally ok with you being there. Best to co-operate and be friendly with them.
