We popped into the museum having found ourselves in the vicinity with some time to spare. A nice collection of buses, coaches, motorcycles, pedal cycles, lorries and cars in generally excellent condition with some undergoing restoration. Worth a visit!

A great museum with loads of interesting vehicles that are well preserved. There is a car that my father owned that brought back happy memories. The petrol cans and spark plugs that were in our garage were displayed at this gem of a Museum.

We spent a couple of hours here. If you are interested in vintage vehicles then this place is well worth a visit. There was a quiz for younger children to do and admission was £5 for adults and children were free.
