Some areas are restricting non-essential activities in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Please ensure that spotting is not temporarily prohibited by a local public health order before heading to the airport.

Official Spotting Locations

Multi storey car park

13th Floor of Multi storey car park - Terminal 1.

A.V.P. - Aviation viewing park

Signposted from main terminal areas and railway station. This area also contains Concorde,Avro 146,DC 10 nose section and Trident(not yet re-assembled)aircraft.

The shown location of the AVP on the linked Google map, is wrong. It is, in fact, at the end of "Wilmslow Old Road". Find your way to the roundabout near the M56 and follow road signs for "Wilmslow" - the AVP is signposted as "Concorde" which involves turning down a road to the left shortly after the traffic lights.
