On my way back home from London for christmas, I stopped off at the Shuttleworth Collection as it's conveniently half way between London and Leicestershire for me. The smell of dope, oil and whatever else makes old planes smells so good that hits you as you walk into Hangar 2 made my day! It's a great place to wander around on a static day, the photos and information around the hangar walls are just as interesting as the aircraft. I can reccomend the Turkey and vegetable pie in the resturant too, fantastic pastry
