British Motor Museum

Banbury Road, Gaydon, Warwickshire, CV35 0BJ

Explore the newly refurbished British Motor Museum - home to the world's largest collection of historic British cars - from the very first Land Rover to Lady Penelope's FAB1.

Experience the sights, sounds and stories of the British motor industry and get 'under the skin' with their interactive exhibits. Take a walk down the 'Time Road' and discover how motoring and family life has changed through the decades as the cars are brought to life by their costumed explainers or join one of their free guided tours. Enjoy dedicated zones on Motorsport, Design & Concepts, Jaguar, Land Rover and film cars. Travel through 'Making British Cars' and see how influential the motor industry has been over the years and where it is heading in the future. Get a 'behind the scenes' insight into how they store and preserve their vehicles in their new Collections Centre, a store, with over 250 cars from both their reserve car collection and that of the Jaguar Heritage Trust to explore. View their restoration work underway in their new historic workshop. There is also an onsite cafe serving hot and cold meals and snacks, an outdoor play area, and free parking. Check out their website for great school holiday activities, special weekend motoring events and a series of workshops and lectures. Fun for all the family whatever the weather! M40 J12 and take B4100.
