“Disappointing”

This collection is basically in one room. Had expected so much more. Would not recommend. Disappointed as previous reviews had been very good.

Brilliant - as a motor racing fan and a huge Nigel Mansell fan this was great. Wonderful to see all his trophies and memorablia and listen to the story of his career. Also great that he supports such great causes

This is an amazing and unique, priceless collection cataloguing and chronicling the brilliant career of Nigel Mansell. We knew he was tops but didn't fully comprehend just how high his success was until we saw this collection. The guide thru is narrated by Nigel himself and is very well done. The ultimate highlight for us was when Nigel himself came out in person and thanked us for visiting the collection and shaking hands with us - I was quite literally speechless. He is such a very nice unassuming man. Thank you Nigel for making our holiday !

This museum is a hidden gem, full of wonderful memorabilia, trophies, awards, racing suits, a wonderful collection of sporting pictures, (including golf) and even several F1 cars driven by the legend himself!

The collection is vast, varied and an absolute treat and well worth a visit if you're not an F1 fan but just want to experience some of the life of a real sporting legend

We were really lucky as not only were we greeted by the great man himself but he afforded us the time to chat as he wandered round the museum talking about his amazing life, his achievements, his heroes, what a memory he has, he was entertaining, friendly and full of amusing anecdotes

The museum Is very disabled friendly, I have my left leg in a boot and am on crutches but it's very well designed and even had a large disabled loo ( if only all attractions were this accommodating! )
It wasn't recognised on our sat nav but we just googled a street map first, and parking is available nearby
Well done Nigel and team, we loved every second!

Fantastic museum and collection of precious artefacts, including some of the F1 Cars Nigel Mansell drove. For the enthusiastic, allow a couple of hours (or more). Nigel 'takes' you around using the recorded handset. And if you are very lucky, you might even get the chance to meet the man himself... sadly on the day I went, he was away doing his usual charity stuff somewhere. And should you fancy purchasing a brand new Mercedes car, he'll will be to sell you one... the museum is above the car showroom.
