The Farnborough Exhibition & Conference Centre may not be at a stone’s throw from London, but it ain’t too far either. The distance between the two is merely 35 miles, and guess what, the venue for the Farnborough International Airshow is conveniently close to some of South’s most popular attractions.

The Farnborough Exhibition & Conference Centre may not be at a stone’s throw from London, but it ain’t too far either. The distance between the two is merely 35 miles, and guess what, the venue for the Farnborough International Airshow is conveniently close to some of South’s most popular attractions. There’s no reason then why you should not plan a visit to the southern counties of England, especially if you are all set to attend the FIA. Here are some attractions you could look forward to visiting:
What if you could test drive the latest Mercedes models around the handling circuit? Intriguing, eh? Makes you want to pack your bags and head to the Mercedes-Benz World straightaway, right? Hold your horses. Once there, you could very well put both the car and your driving skills to test with one of the driving experiences on offer. Need we say more?
Did you know that Birdworld is one of England’s largest bird parks? Now you do. Interestingly enough, it covers a whopping 26 acres. Located south-west of the town of Farnham, Surrey, Birdworld could be your perfect picnic spot. Are your kids tagging along for the trade show? You ought to bring them here. After all, the bird park also includes an Underwater World and Jenny Wren children’s farm. What else could you ask for?
The official residence of the Queen, the Windsor Castle remains a working place even today. Well, it’s kind of a big deal, once you get to know that it’s been a royal home and fortress for over 900 years. And that’s not all. It is indeed the largest occupied castle in the world. Who would have thought that a visit to an aerospace & defense trade show could lead you to someplace so royal and magnificent? That’s what you call killing two birds with one stone!
This one’s again for your kids. With more than 55 rides and attractions, this is one of those places that they would surely love. Imagine seeing them fly through the treetops to escape fearsome dragons, and ride the thrilling rapids with a Viking. A sight for sore eyes, isn’t it?
Are you a diehard rugby fan? Even if you aren’t, you shouldn’t miss out on the chance to visit the Twickenham Stadium. It’s not every day that you are at an exhibition venue that’s just 25 miles from the home of England Rugby. Having a seating capacity of 82,000 and being the largest dedicated rugby union venue in the world, this one should be on your go-to list, like already.
The rich heritage and history of Ascot Racecourse is difficult to match, if not impossible. Only a few sporting venues come close. Not to mention, over the past 300 years, the Royal Ascot has taken the centerstage, and grown to become an integral part of the British social calendar. Isn’t that reason enough for you to be here? You bet!
A visit to the Farnborough Exhibition & Conference Centre could turn into a family picnic in no time, if not before, at least once the show is over, provided, you do have some extra time on hands. Plan ahead!
