  • Lots of Historic f1 cars .... for me maybe a few to many McLarens and Williams ... but well worth a visit .. cafe and shop too... can be busy on race days
  • The collection itself is very impressive and well worth a visit however the service in the cafĂ© was appalling, the worst I have ever encountered. All we ordered was two coffees at 10am on a very quiet Sunday morning. After waiting 20 minutes we politely asked where our coffees were, the girl making the drinks said her colleague hadn't written the order down. She didn't seem in the least bit interested and certainly didn't apologise for the wait. We assumed she would then make our drinks, but no, she carried on making drinks for people who had arrived long after us. As it was getting busier we realised we were never going to get our coffees and asked for a refund. We got our money back but without any apology for the poor service. So if you are going to visit the collection take a flask and a picnic unless you've got the patience of a saint!
  • Worth a visit if you're a Motorsport fan. Great collection and history on show
  • Bigger collection than I had expected, worth a visit if you're a motorsports fan, they could do with a bigger building to be honest to exploit their collection
  • If you are a F1 History nut like me, this place is a must. Certainly, i've been in a lot better museums, but what it counts here is the cars, not the building, or the facilities, or the assistance, or the food, etc. (Which are two stars at very, very best ...)
