London Motorcycle Museum opened in May 1999 at Oldfield Lane South, Greenford, Middlesex. A charitable trust, it displays a range of over 150 classic and British motorcycles. Notable exhibits include the last Triumph Bonneville T140 out of the Meriden gates in 1983.HistoryBill Crosby, the museum’s founder, started collecting good examples of British motorcycles in 1960. The bikes were displayed at Syon Park until 1979 and then at a number of temporary locations until the site in Greenford was found. Former Coston's Farm, it had been used as an Ealing Council depot (Ravenor Depot) since the 1930s. Now run by volunteers as a charitable trust, the museum actively promotes educational visits and is affiliated to the British Motorcycle Charitable Trust.Future expansionThe museum is raising money for an extension to display another sixty motorcycles. The main building is planned as "The Home of Triumph " with special areas for other makes, military and police motorcycles.ExhibitsAll the motorcycles on display are in excellent condition and represent the best examples of all the well-known makes, such as BSA, Triumph and Norton as well as less well known makers including Coventry-Eagle and Rudge. A full inventory of exhibits is listed on the museum’s official web site and includes a number of unique prototypes, such as the development Triumph Trident and motorcycles that have been featured in the media.

  • I had a great afternoon out with a few buddies. Some fantastic bikes. Well looked after and really interesting. 
  • Very interesting display, especially the shed out the back with prototype Triumphs etc. The only drawback especially for those using public transport is the location.
  • i love engines now! thanks to the cut away triumph i understand how it all works!!!
  • excellent museum, friendly and knowledgeable staff provide as much additional information as you want, free tea or coffee is offered for a small donation to charity in return, an extensive selection of old time motorcycles and a separate area dedicated to Triumphs, well worth £8 of anybody's money and highly recommended
  • Amazing little gem. Drove past it for ages before realizing what it was. The staff are so friendly and helpful and know so much about the bikes that it's obvious they have a real passion for what they are doing. For the price to get in, it's well worth a trip down. Had a great time wondering around. For what looks like a small-ish building when you first enter, popping outside and wandering into the "Triumph barn" it's got a beautiful collection. Had an appreciation of classic bikes before, but definitely made me realize just how perfect these lil' old bikes truly are.
  • The main collection is excellent, with older bikes well represented along with the 50's, 60's & 70's classics. However, the Triumph collection housed in its own building is outstanding. The knowledgeable staff made the visit even better.
