  • Good museum for all the F 1 fans. Plenty of cars to see and all the info on everything from the drivers to the tracks. There are military vehicles and motorcycles too. A great day out for a rainy day plus a great cafe inside.
  • Great place to visit for a couple of hours if you like looking at F1 cars and military vehicles. There is a very good selection of vehicles quite a few unique to this collection. But £48 for 4 adults for a couple of hours is far from reasonable. I can see why there wasn't many people there when we went.
  • Great couple of hours. Cafe was closed on our visit as was shop. Was expecting to see more F1 things 2 to 3 wings now have war machines bikes cars trucks and tanks so might not be interesting to younger F1 fans but good collection from Willians force India jaguar McLaren. And some vintage machines.
  • Huge collection. Room to expand. So many lovely cars. Also a great ww2 collection
  • 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.
