  • With around 820 Motorbikes all of UK Manufacture this is a must visit for anyone interested in this type of transport. It took us around 3 hours to get around the 5 halls. We did not visit the restaur...  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.
