Get back on track at Brooklands Museum
As every self-respecting racing fan knows, Brooklands was the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation, and was once home to a thriving motor-racing circuit and aerodrome, where many ‘firsts’ were set and records broken. Located south of Weybridge in Surrey, its heritage and history have been preserved on the site in the Brooklands Museum since it first opened regularly in 1991.
Brooklands Museum: a brush with history
Brooklands Museum is open daily and offers a wide-range of motoring and aviation exhibits. On display are such classic cars as the 1921 Wolseley Moth, a Morris Eight Saloon from 1935 and a 105-year-old Lorraine Dietrich Vieux Charles III. Aircraft include a replica Sopwith Camel, a Wellington bomber and, perhaps most spectacular of all, Concorde.
All aboard at the London Bus Museum
In 2011, the London Bus Museum moved its collection to Brooklands, including around 35 buses and coaches dating from 1875 to 1979. Arranged chronologically, they showcase the development of this crucial mode of public transport. Looking for a cheap hotel Near Brooklands Museum?
