Only a small museum but what a gem. The owner is very knowledgeable and helpful. A brilliant selection of cars, vans and motorbikes, along with all the paraphernalia. Even if your not into motors it’s still a step back in time.

This isn’t your mainstream motor museum like Haynes or Beaulieu, but it still has a great collection crammed into a relatively small area, with some very unusual vehicles. The owner himself was very knowledgeable and informative with lots of great stories to tell about individual...More

There is a wheelchair lift I believe. But sadly there is limited space to get a wheelchair near to all the cars.

No, but there are three cafe's and toilets within sight. Moretonhampstead is very compact. There are also three food pubs also within the town and a few hundred paces.
