I wouldn't say this is a full day out but it's an interesting few hours with plenty to see. Good links to road network a45/a46 m69/m6 etc. I would recommend trying the DC diner while you're local too. Good little restaurant built in an aeroplane.

Plenty of exhibits inside and outside to keep everyone occupied and interested. However, the highlight was a visit to the cockpit of the Avro Vulcan with a most informative talk by one of the volunteers. That was worth the visit alone - thank you.
