Sammy Miller MBE is a motorcycling legend, 11 times British Champion, winner of over 1400 events and still winning competitions more than 50 years after his first victory. The Museum houses one of the finest collections of fully restored motorcycles in the world, including factory racers and exotic prototypes, with the collection constantly evolving as new bikes are acquired. There are over 400 rare and classic motorcycles on display in four galleries - one of which showcases the fabulous Norton Collection. The museum is set within an attractive courtyard, with tea rooms, craft shops and children's play area. It is also home to many chickens, donkeys, goats, alpacas and two aviaries.

Good Afternoon. Thank you for reviewing our Museum and I am pleased you had such a pleasant time here. We do run the bikes on event and marque days and occasionally you will see Sammy - who is now 82 - testing a bike round the complex. We still run our restoration workshop weekdays and Sammy and Bob can be... More

An amazing collection of motorcycles of all ages and styles. You can get up close to all the bikes because they are not closed off in cases. Very reasonable admisson charge. There is also a gift section with some really good and different gift ideas for motocycle lovers. I bought a framed picture signed by Sammy Miller for a very... More

Great start to the day, lots of different motorcycles from different eras, well laid out, clean and safe. some bikes are quite close to the walkways. Not enough history given for the bikes. Entry price is average not too expensive. Gift shops and lovely cafe on site too where you can see your food being cooked, accommodate for intolerance's too!... More

Terrific museum, entry price is realistic unlike other places not too far away. The collection of bikes is amazing, I know my bikes well, but there were many here that even I had never heard of. The collection is laid out so you can see you favourites first and then look at the others afterwards. The staff member was very... More

Not much that can be said about the Sammy Miller museum other than if you like motorcycles you must pay the museum a visit... If you don't your a muppet.

Sited in what must have been farm buildings, this is a relatively small attraction with a variety of animals, a couple of craft shops and a cafe to keep the kids and non-bikers amused for an hour or so. However, the museum is packed with a large number of immaculate, rare and quirky motorcycles ranging from the early 1900s to... More

Called in on 'Norton' Day, need earplugs when they were fired up but what a treat! Very impressed with the museum, a wider collection than I thought there would be and a few very rare bikes literally built by individuals in back sheds - British engineering is something to be very proud of. The museum was so well kept a... More
