With winter finally drawing to a close, seven day opening resumes at Great British Car Journey from Friday 24 March. We’ll be open from 10.00am to 5.00pm (last entry 4.00pm) every day until October.
With winter firmly behind us, we’ve lined up a packed calendar of car meets for 2023 and a number of family-friendly special events.
Austin, Mini, Jaguar, Jowett, TVR, Rover and Aston Martin are just a handful of the iconic British brands that will be seen in the Great British Car Journey car park with their respective clubs throughout 2023.
Since opening in 2021, the Ambergate-based museum has become increasingly popular with car clubs and groups, who use it as a meeting place for their club members.
Our central location on the A6 on the edge of the Peak District National Park, together with our toilet facilities and popular Filling Station cafe, make us an ideal meeting place for car clubs and starting point for drives.
“We aim to have as much of a show outside Great British Car Journey as we do inside. It’s just one of the many things that makes us unique,” explained the museum founder and CEO Richard Usher.
Inside, Great British Car Journey has a display of more than 130 cars – all British designed and manufactured. Alongside the fondly remembered original Mini, Austin Seven, Morris Minor and Ford Escort, visitors will also find lesser known British cars like the Arrol-Johnston and Gilbern, as well as an iconic DeLorean, Elton John’s Bentley Continental T and Lord Baden Powell’s Rolls-Royce.
In addition to the car meets, there are also a number of family-friendly events taking place throughout the year at Great British Car Journey, including 80s Retro Day on Sunday 7 May.
Family tickets cost just £36.00 when booked online and admit two adults and up to three children.
Single admission is just £17.50 but, when booked online, visitors pay just £16.00. Concessions are also available.
Make sure to book direct and online through the Great British Car Journey website to secure the best ticket price.
