At present the Wing Hangar remains situated within the Rolls-Royce site security boundary, which means that we are unable to open fully to the public as yet. We do however have an agreement with the Rolls-Royce company that allows us to offer fully guided group visits by prior arrangement. We can also offer a range of catering options which cover requirements for groups who may have travelled a long distance and wish to make their visit a full day experience and include a reception presentation and a full buffet lunch; as well as more local visitors who may simply wish to call in to see the museum, and perhaps have a sandwich afterwards.

We aim to set a guide maximum of 24 and a minimum of 5 people for group visits, but we can accommodate slightly larger groups by prior arrangement. For party numbers below 5 we can also register you for inclusion in an arranged group of similar smaller parties and notify you when we have sufficient registrations to make up a minimum group size.

To discuss your specific visit requirements, please email Sharon at shrnsev@aol.com

Rolls-Royce Leisure Hucknall  (also known as the R-R Hucknall Welfare)

Visitors that have agreed to start their tour at the R-R Hucknall Lesiure building should use entrance A. Please consult your emailed itinerary for instructions.

Groups will meet their guides in the Rolls-Royce Leisure building, accessible via entrance A, and should not attempt to enter the main Rolls-Royce site via the Dorey Way - entrance B

There is ample parking in the adjacent R-R Leisure car park and for coaches on the road outside. Groups will clear site security inside the Leisure building reception, before assembling for tea/coffee and a presentation covering the HUFTM project and the history of the Hucknall site. Visitors then meet their guides who will escort them to the museum on the main site. After the museum visit everyone comes back together and returns to the Leisure building for lunch and further film presentations etc. for the larger groups. Access is from the B6009 and the entrance is slightly set back from the road signposted R-R Leisure.

The nearest postcode for the R-R Hucknall Leisure building entrance on Watnall Road is NG15 6GQ at the junction with Westville Drive, and both exit and entrance roads are almost opposite this junction. The entrance is shown in the image above.

R-R Hucknall Main Site Dorey Way Gate Access

Groups that have agreed to meet at the main R-R Hucknall site gate need to follow the signs from the new traffic island, (shown as point B on the image above), signposted Harrier Business Park, to the new Rolls-Royce Hucknall site entrance. Access is from the A611. The postcode for the site is NG15 6EU, but please be aware that this is likely to take you to the old No 2 Gate site entrance on the B6009 Watnall Road if you are using a Satnav.

Currently there is no charge for visitors to the museum, and all visits are on a donations basis. We are often asked what a guide donation per person should be for visiting groups and we have set this at £6.00 per head. For the next three years we will be supported by a limited amount of funding from both the Rolls-Royce company and the R-R Heritage Trust organisation, who jointly contribute to our running costs.

However all major upgrade and improvement work to take the project forward towards our stated goal, will need to be funded from other public sources. All donations, however small, therefore make an important contribution to the HUFTM project vision.

We regret to announce the Wing Hangar will remain closed for the foreseeable future
