On 23rd November Spain are requiring that all visitors have a negative PCR test result within 72 hours of arriving in the country. Due to an upcoming trip I have tried to find the options for getting this test done – in a suitable time frame and with reliability of the results to be returned in time. Certificates will be accepted in digital or paper format, but it seems this is one more hoop to jump through for travelling now :/

So Where Can I Get This Test Done?

Below is a summary of my findings so far. I am based in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire so there is a focus for locations nearest to me. All of the tests issue a certificate for travel, which will include name, date of birth, passport number, test type and result.


I appreciate this post might be controversial, but I often enjoy seeing the aircraft outside the grounds of airshows, usually as they are making a turn, using more throttle away from you or perhaps seeing them from different angles. Or simply the tickets are sold out, or sometimes you don’t agree with the pricing (contentious!). I enjoyed seeing the Vulcan’s last flight outside of Bournemouth airshow like this from the cliffs – I’m glad I did, as otherwise I would never have seen it fly for the last time.

For the first time I tried to view the Royal Internation Air Tattoo (RIAT) in RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire from outside the show, and being such a popular show in land there were plenty of viewing options. I ended up in Lakeview Park and View, but I have listed other options below:

I couldn’t find much information about this site online before I left, but just happened to stumble upon it.

Location: ~0.5 miles West of the airfield, just off the A417 to the west of Horcott Lakes:
