  • Its difficult for me to review as I am bike mad, but I was a little disappointed. If you are over 60 then this could be the best venue in the world, but it does not represent much past 1970. Its very ...  more »
  • Really, really worthwhile if you like motorcycles. The breadth and depth of what is on display is enormous. There are many, many bikes you will not see anywhere else.  more »
  • Visited with enthusiastic friends. Amazing displays and history which was fascinating to read. After one hour got information overload but the men enjoyed it more. Cafe staff friendly, we had pre-pack...  more »

  • I have never visited a museum with so much potential and so little fulfillment. A truly fantastic display of machines is almost totally wasted through lack of any narrative. The purpose of a museum is to tell a story - how it (in this case British bikes) started, how it grew and, ultimately, what became of it. Instead of a story, all we get is just row after row of gleaming machines without any thread or continuity - other than some loose year-on-year groupings. After a while I, a biker since '68, was just plain bored by what was on offer - once in October 2015 and again in November 2016, lured back by the promise that things have changed: they haven't! It's a bit like watching a firework display at high noon on midsummer's day. What a waste!
  • A fantastic place if you love old motorcycles! Plenty of BSA, Norton, AJS and Royal Enfield in stock! Even the Brough Superiors are here, just great! Friendly staff, 5 halls of motoring history with plenty of info and in my case a treasurable souvenirshop (Royal Enfield enthusiast). Three hours inside in total is nothing! Recommendable!
  • A great place to visit with over 1000 motorcycles to see. Good for the enthusiast and the novice, places to sit throughout the museum. A decent restaurant for hot food and drinks. Took me a few hours to get around to see all the bikes. Good value.
  • Vast collection of British bikes, each having a detailed history. Very compact to the point of being a little cramped. Cafe is cheap and cheerful, but lacking choice. Could use some seating through the display halls and an automation of the many heavy doors, as I can't be the only motorcycle enthusiast that doesn't walk that well.
  • A fantastic museum with a fantastic selection of British motorcycles. Excellent value for money. Food was good too.
