We invite you to visit one of the finest motor museums in europe.

You Will Be Amazed!


Admire horse-drawn vehicles from the 1880s and learn how they gave way first to steam driven, then petrol & diesel powered motor lorries & buses. Perhaps remember times when garages might have just a single fuel pump, and someone would come out to serve you petrol at less than 4 shillings a gallon!


Take your time & enjoy being able to move easily between exhibits to inspect them from all sides.

- Walk freely around over 60 historic vehicles - walkways have few roped-off areas and are wheelchair friendly, enabling visitors to get really close to early steam wagons; vintage fire-engines; double-deck & single-deck buses.


We don't expect you to just stand and observe from a distance!

- See how many improvements have been made to make life easier and safer on the roads today.

- Get behind the wheel of a vintage lorry or experience the comforts of a modern truck cab.

- Admire the Pope-mobile, a specially built vehicle for Pope Paul's visit in 1982.

- And children love our vintage fire engines with their big brass bells.


We help bring to life times past, and create an entertaining atmosphere.

- Numerous audio-visual displays feature vehicles being built and at work

- Hands-on interactive displays for all ages to enjoy

- Bells ring out from fire-engines rushing to an emergency call.

- Relax in the cinema to watch films from our archives.

- A lorry driving experience where children can really feel that they are driving a large vehicle.

- And then, our guides too have many interesting tales to tell!

The museum will be closed for one day only, on Wednesday 5th June for a private function.
