Had a belter of a time and I didn't even realise I liked cars that much! The carrot and orange soup from the cafe was 10/10! Recommended to everyone! Car lovers and non car lovers!

Lots of cars with a variety of ages and categories. Good but brief information provided on each. Enjoyed the few cars from the films! Able to get close to all cars. Cafe upstairs had good if limited food.

Excellent on all fronts. Even without the external displays of BMC & BL cars. Just enough information with each vehicle and and some excellent examples of each.
