The museum is a place of pure magic, beauty, passion, legends, pioneering engineering, heritage, history, fame, success and deep tragedy !!! Yes I stood in the ashes and could not hold back the tears. My Dad was a Director at James and Velocette in the 1950s before the crash of the British bike industry. He gave many a bike racer their first factory bike ride in those days, he was well connected in the industry. After Velo went bump, my Dad was offered a Directorship of the ACU, which meant he would have to relocate his whole family down to London which he decided wasn't right at that time. He rode a 1955 Vinnie up until his death at 78 years in 2007. R.I.P. Dad.
My Grandad was a biker c1920
I would camp in a tent inbetween the aisles of bikes just to spend more time in the presence of so many utterly amazing motorcycles, their past famous riders and the incredible history !
The museum is easy to find, free parking, easy access, a lovely building, a large shop (with models, DVDs, books, clothing and memorabilia), toilets and disabled toilets, a reasonable cafe upstairs (with lift), huge reception area with seating and bikes to look at before you pay to enter the museum.
The motorcycle museum is pure magic, GO THERE !!!!!
If you are into bikes, don't think about it, just do it.
