  • Lovely little place. Yes, it's very small but it's really informative and great to see some local speed memorabilia for which the area of Pendine is famous. Several good bars/eateries alongside the museum too which are very modern and accommodating. The beach itself is beautiful and it's lovely to have a stroll and take in the sights.
  • This is a little subjective. If your interested in the subject matter, you'll enjoy your 45 minutes here. It is very small.
  • Small museum of land speed record attempts on Pendine Sands. Basically it's Babs garage, but worth a visit to see her
  • Could use a refresh but a nice room with some iconic welsh speed history contained inside
  • A very small but charming museum documenting the land speed record set on the sands it overlooks and the tragic story leading to the burial and later restoration of the record breaking car.
