Barbados Concorde Experience

The Concorde stopped flying in 2003, but you can re-live the glamour days of supersonic flight at Grantley Adams International Airport.

How’s that for a new high’

The Concorde, the world’s most exclusive aircraft once frequented by the likes of Queen Elizabeth II, flew to Barbados for over 20 years, cutting the eight-hour trans-Atlantic trip into a breezy four-hour jaunt. The G-BOAE on display is one of only seven of the aircraft operated by British Airways, and the only one displayed outside the US and UK.

Every aspect of this supersonic stunner’s history and engineering are on show via interactive multimedia displays, including motion-activated engineers who point out the aircraft’s coolest features.

Not quite your turn to board’ Relax in the replica of the famous Concorde Room at London Heathrow airport, while your kids amuse themselves by digitally piloting aircrafts.

And the best part is, you get the whole trip- minus the jetlag.

  • Carry the kids: unlike the real Concorde flights, the experience is affordable for whole families.
  • It doesn’t matter that you won’t actually be flying anywhere, the effects of 9/11 have impacted even the fictional. Be prepared for an absurdly comprehensive airport-style security check to enter the facility.
  • Sundays are usually the busiest days, which may mean a lively, fun group to go through the experience with, or a loud obnoxious throng to navigate around.

Hours: Mon to Sun 9am to 6 pm

Admission: BDS$35 adult; BDS$25 child.
