If you grew up in the times of Side cars and trams, this is a must. Takes you back to those days you often remember with or woithout thinking or regrets. Puts you back into the times of Hot-rods on Friday nights at Wembley.

Wasn't that keen to go in , free admission just a donation. Turned out to be a pleasant tour,informal friendly and yes worth getting of the hop on hop off bus. Enjoyable 30mins if you have kids with you something they would enjoy.
