Experience a true legend; the only one in the Caribbean - the British Airways G-BOAE Concorde affectionately known as Alpha Echo. Your tour is for an approximate 45 minutes to 1 hour which includes an awe-inspiring presentation titled "Engineered for Speed" and being able to board the aircraft where they watch another presentation onboard of the in-flight experience of Concorde.

Your tour guide takes you around the facility and provides you with all of the relative facts and historic features on the Alpha Echo Concorde.

If you are at the airport you can take a brief walk across to the taxi stand area and enter through the side gate for easier access to the facility from there.

There is no audio or video recording allowed on tour but guests are allowed to take as many photographs as possible. Guests are required to lock their bags in the lockers provided and they are also required to keep the key for their specific locker until they have completed their tour. (please note that one locker should be used per person as there are numerous lockers available for use therefore there is no need for various guests to share)

We were lucky enough to be in Barbados when the Concorde landed for the last time. It seemed as if everyone came to the airport to see her land. We visited the next time we visited and enjoyed it a lot.

It is definitely nice to see the Concorde in person and to climb inside and get a feel for the experience. The staff is great and does there best to get you to have a good time. The price is a little high, especially if you add in the cab fare to get there. It consists of looking at some... More

As a resident of Barbados I knew that Concorde was here but I'd never gotten round to seeing it. I recently dropped friends off at the airport and as we were early they suggest a visit to the exhibition and I'm so glad they did. The presentation was interesting and informative and our guide, Andriena, was personable and knowledgeable. All... More

Intersting experience to get inside of the Concorde. You may have a sit and get the felling of the airplane.

I first went to the Concorde experience in 2007 and enjoyed it so much that I went again in January 2017. Re-living the history of what a magnificent aircraft this was and how passengers travelled in first class style was fascinating! Watching the vintage footage was momentous! The aircraft remains in pristine condition and the tour guide was very knowledgable... More

The Concorde Experience was great, and a special experience to go on the plane, This Classic exhibition was spoiled by a very poor and badly organised presentation by very young staff. The whole experience and information did not flow as smoothly as expected
