Fairford Airshow Camping  is a family run campsite for the Air Tattoo for and is open for all ages. It  is situated on Townsend Farm (Townsend Farm, Whelford GL7 4DY ).


Fairford Airshow Camping offers everything you could want for your stay over the Air Tattoo (RIAT). It is about as close as you can get (600 metres) so the Air show is in easy walking distance.


The campsite resides in 5 large beautiful fields split with hedgerows so there is plenty of space to pick a spot where you want and set up your camp. The site will be open from Tuesday , the 11th of July.


So that everyone can enjoy themselves for those that want we have some fields specially set aside for family's and those wishing to have good nights sleep this is in our quiet field.



We are very lucky to sit right under the flight path so the view of the planes arriving and turning around is fantastic, so we are pleased to boast excellent park and view with facilities.


There are always very helpful, friendly staff on hand to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to come in and out of the campsite as you please.


All in all Fairford airshow camping on Townsend farm is really a very special place to stay before, during and after the Fairford Air Tattoo (RIAT).


Thank you to all the people who came last year; we look forward to seeing you again this year! and to meeting any people new to our campsite
