  • The national motorcycle museum was chosen as our destination and final meeting point for our motorcycle club's big annual meeting. And as I have been meaning to visit this amazing place for so long and I'm glad I finally had the chance to go there. Hat's off to the staff, Before we even arrived they went above and beyond to help accommodate our group's huge parking requirements by way of our own sign posted parking area and we even had the pleasure of discounted access to the museum. The museum itself is amazing, I didn't know where to look. There are literally hundreds of beautiful bikes on display ranging from pre world war to modern classics and some of the strangest motorbikes you will ever see. There is a cafe upstairs with excellent food and drinks for you to refuel yourself and then take to the gift shop for some souvenirs of the day. Visiting the museum is a must for motorcycle enthusiasts. So many great bikes you will not believe it until you see it for yourself.
  • Seemed to have all the British bikes. Plenty of space to wander about. But some of the exhibits were crammed in together. Good lighting and informative descriptions. But the museum concentrated on the bikes, not the stories behind the people and the companies who built them. The shop should have prints of the photos on display in the museum. Otherwise a good couple of hours.
  • Enjoyed my visit. I go about every ten years and always find it of interest. I did have two prepaid vouchers for entry which were bought a few years ago but did not have them with me on the day. My mistake but I still felt the entry fee was worth it
  • Continues to be an excellent day out. Wonderfully selection of well presented machines. I would like the information on the bikes to be a bit larger print or be raised up on a stand, as I found it too difficult to read the detail (I did, though, pick the notices up to read them, - I don't know if that's what is expected/allowed). The whole venue is very high quality and the food is exceptional.
  • I've been meaning to visit this fabulous place for so many years and I'm so glad I finally made it. If you're crazy for motorcycles your eyes will be popping out of your head and that's just whats on display in the foyer. This is an extraordinary testament to British engineering where there were no rules and anything could be done including designing and building a prototype motorcycle in a shed. I can't speak highly enough of this place and the enthusiasts that made it possible. My only criticism is that I would like to see an expansion/relocation of the centre to represent all other international manufacturers such as Japan, Germany, Italy etc. Hopefully with community and local council support this is a reality that could be on the horizon. Once again, hats off and much respect to the people who made this possible. Enjoy.
