Whilst away in Eastbourne a visit to Bentley Motor Museum was in order. Yes lovely old cars and cycles and motorbikes and basically that was it. Ok it was raining so we didnt venture to see the wildfowl but at £8 a person entrance fee it was well overpriced and not worth it. Gift shop there, usual tack and a... More

We're sorry that you didn't enjoy your visit to Bentley. We are only open at weekends until 24th March. Our motor collection is unusual and includes rare and collectable cars and the Bentley Shop is in the process of being re-stocked. We are receiving very pleasant compliments from other visitors.

I am both a zoo and a transport buff, so I expected two hits in one visiting Bentley. The motor museum is quite modest, but there are a few rarities. A half hour will suffice for most visitors. The wildfowl collection is spread over a few acres of attractive, man-made lakes and pools. As well as ducks and geese, there... More

We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit. Our Motor museum is not a private collection and as such, we are pleased that we have a variety of vehicles, some of which are rare and collectable. Our visitors tend to be families and school groups for whom we hope we provide an excellent day out. Our tearooms are under new... More

Visited the Bentley Wildfowl & Motor Museum after passing it in the car several times en route somewhere else. We were amazed! I had never heard of this attraction but there was something there for everyone and we ended up staying all day. We visited the wildfowl reserve first, via the miniature railway. The kids LOVED the little train and... More

On a rare sunny day over the Christmas break we decided to wander around Bentley Wildfowl & Motor Museum. It was easy to find and we didn't have a problem parking. We could have bought a bag of bird food but sadly didn't notice until our way out. The ducks/geese/swans/storks etc were all in separated areas and were clearly marked... More

One of the best days out of 2013 - magical atmosphere in and around the house/ gardens and lots of interesting/ eccentric odds and ends which kept our boys happy - namely the car museum but also birds reserve, train ride etc. Just about the least corporate-y tourist operation I've yet been to on a paying basis, and that's a...

We took our daughter and her canadian fiance on a day out for my husband's birthday. The weather was good, if a little cloudy. There is a Motor Museum which is worth seeing. Many of the vehicles are on loan so they are well restored and running since their owners take them to shows duriong the summer (not all at... More

Car museum even had a couple of old Bentleys in it and was interesting. The food was very good with home... More

We went on a very hot day a couple of months ago, and expected to find it crowded, but I think that everyone had gone to the beach. So we had a wonderful time looking at the birds, wandering around the house, loving looking at the vintage cars, going on the train which was such good value for money, and... More

Having driven past so many times we decided to give it a try. It's not expensive to visit and the grounds are lovely. We went into the cafe first as it was lunch time. This was probably the only let down of the whole place. As soon as you enter it's smokey in a sort of chip fat kind of... More

A lovely large collection of beautiful old cars of all ages (some of them really old). A lot of birds to take a look at. :) Nice walk around! Miniature train available only on weekends in september. The garden was quite nice, but the children´s play area was rather modest.
