A wonderful visit. The Morgan cars are quite fantastic in marvellous condition. What a delight and great range of types and styles. The old bikes and motorbikes add to the general visit. Not a lengthy one and one well worth a drive to discover.

We had never heard of the CM Booth collection until we were scanning Trip Advisor for attractions in the area, and as former Morgan car owners we decided to drop in on our way to the Kent & East Sussex Railway. Having never really left childhood behind, I've been to lots of motor and toy museums and this is one of the most charming and characterful. A cliché I know, but this is a true Aladdin's Cave, chock-a-block with motoring artefacts and memorabilia, not to mention the unique collection of Morgan three-wheelers. Hidden behind an antique shop on the road through Rolvenden, we missed it on the first pass - look for the Union Flags and park on the road outside. Pay your £3 entrance fee and ascend into nostalgia heaven.

Who could possibly know that behind this delightful little antique shop lay the wondrous world of The Morgan Collection. Morgans lovingly displayed in all their glory - and all things classic cars - an obvious life long passion of the owner and my goodness does it show! Model cars and trains, glass cabinets displaying all kinds of classic car stuff from pistons to fabulous shiny chrome car horns and just about everything you can imagine - marvellous to see!

From the outside it looks like a secondhand shop, BUT WOW!!!!! Go through the house to what looks like an "ordinary" end of garden garage. Inside is a fantastic collection of Morgan 3 wheelers which he has rescued & rebuilt/restored. An Aladins cave if ever there was one. There are also a couple of other cars bikes & even a 1930's caravan with expanding sides.

What an awesome museum this really is, you would never think from the front that there would be such a large collection of magnificent cars and memorabilia it seems to go on for miles, it was like a sweet shop pick and mix but of cars instead, there is so much to see you will be in there for ages, we loved it a great day out!
