Tucked away behind Jaguar and Aston Martin facilities and accessed currently through roadworks. Nice and unusual collections of old and not so old cars and prototypes plus some associated paraphernalia. Free guided tours on offer. We didn't partake but the guide sounded enthused and knowledgeable as he passed by us with his group of only two. Good value and they... More

Had a great day here, signed up for gift aid and got a ticket for free return visits. Love looking at the cars that my Dad used to own. Fabulous memories of day trips and holidays with us 4 kids on the back seat, no seat belts or booster seats. Frightening! Well worth a visit.

My husband and I visited here with our elderly, infirm parents both of whom are wheelchair users. We found the exhibition interesting and the staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable pointing out how to access all of the exhibits with the wheelchairs. The facilities and cafe were good and my husband enjoyed the Land rover experience. We were surprised to... More

The facilities are excellent with toilets just as you come in off the car park and on each floor in the museum. There was lots for kids to do in the museum with vintage... More

The Heritage Motor Centre maybe doesn't have the most exciting sounding name in the world but certainly is a great place to visit if you have an interest in cars. I went in given the name of the centre expecting only to see artefacts from the past but I am pleased to say that I was wrong. There is a... More

Visited this location last year around the same time enjoyed the vast array interesting cars and some interesting history of motoring. Expecting the exhibits to be the same but I'm glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised to see that there were some new selections of our motoring heritage on display. A very enjoyable clean location. With knowledgeable and... More

Great collection of cars, slightly too biased toward Rover hystory, but never the less it is a really interesting place to spend an afternoon with the kids. Nice Shaun the Sheep set up too.

My wife and I visited here as part of our rainy day schedule. The facility is clean, well kept and there is a small information card by each exhibit....we enjoyed being able to look a and move around each individual car. Cinema experience is good. We took the tour (which was late, I hate lateness) at 11.15 which I would... More

First visit here and was amazed by the amount of vehicles there....anybody of any age with an interest in cars would love it here...plenty to look at it so take your time. We chose to eat lunch there...nice food but way overpriced...was aimed at their corporate clientele as there are conference facilities. Did feel very underdressed as tourists in there... More
