A great exhibition and friendly staff made for a lovely experience! The men really enjoyed the outing. Even though I don't know anything about cars, I could thoroughly enjoy the visit!

Lovely place to visit
Aug 2021 • Couples
Made a booking and the whole experience was nice, it's a beautiful place and there were lots of classic cars including 1 out of 3 Austin Martin's ever made. The museum has a great collection and the show rooms are very nice and clean, I will bring kids next time and I'd recommend it to any car lover.

Awesome variety

Super interesting and fascinating. Stunning location. Would've loved to see the inside of the cars but other than that it was a great activity especially on a rainier day.

Amazing collection of vehicles and beautiful property
May 2021
We visited on a rainy day and it was so nice to walk around and see such history. The cars are all unique and well maintained and there are great descriptions of each vehicle. Some are so rare! I love that the history is preserved. The museum is on a beautiful estate and everyone is very welcoming.

A step back into a time when craftmanship was an art form
Apr 2021
I was pleasantly surprised by the gentleman guide in the first showroom. I sadly did not get his name - he was incredibly knowledgeable and answered all our questions. He gave us lots of insight into the cars and additional info e.g. how often the cars are physically driven etc,
On leaving we noticed that he was then driving the tram to ferry guests to the wine tasting. We had further questions for him and once again he kindly answered them all. My tip to visitors is to ask the guides for extra info.

Not just for petrolheads!

I have visited the museum a number of times, and every time found a number of cars different from previous visits - they do move vehicles around and change the exhibits slightly. But although I missed a few cars from previous exhibits (the Ickx/Bell Porsche 956 and the few Ferrari cars, for example) it remains a world class museum and an absolute must.
