This summer, the Red Arrows will be travelling across the UK, impressing crowds with their skills and displays.

From the likes of Southport, Silverstone, Swansea, the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Blackpool, Edinburgh and even overseas in Canada, the RAF group will be very busy this summer.

While London is often only treated to a flypast by the display team, the Red Arrows will be visiting one popular coastal commuter town with a direct train from London.

It's important to note the dates and locations are subject to change. You can find the latest information on displays by the Red Arrows via the RAF website here.
