  • If you like motor racing in any way this is a must. The place is immaculate and the cafe is really nicely done. Great food and chilled atmosphere. The museum is wonderful and I doubt there can be a better place to get close to real f1 cars. I wouldn't say it's ideal for small children to visit as a lot of the enjoyment is seeing your old hero's cars from years gone by. I took my dad who is in his 70's and we had a fantastic 3 hours.
  • We visited here while on holiday. It's a fantastic collection of Formula one and racing related items. There's also a large collection of War items which you go into first. Very clean, very organised, well done.
  • Great collection of cars, well laid out. Good cafe as well. Not an expensive day out.
  • Great location. Plenty of parking.Great exhibition very clear information on each exhibit. Very moving memorials to great drivers. We will visit again .
  • Really good museum. Lots of F1 cars and historic notes about them. A few tanks and several military still vehicles.
