The staff were friendly, did like how Graham one of the volunteers that was working in the Jaguar collection, took the time to talk about the history of the brand and also started to show interiors of some of them to show the workman ship.

Covid means queuing outside and some items are closed but ignoring that a great day and some great and unusual cars

Now is the time to go to avoid the crowds. You forget you’ve got a mask on. Great way to spend a rainy day

Jim one of the employees was so informative and passionate so really brought the whole experience to life.

Wonderful journey through motoring history with some very well put together period scene exhibits.
