Did you know that you can now ‘Park and Peek’ at Great British Car Journey?

A new entry ticket has been introduced to the classic car visitor attraction in Ambergate.

Costing just £5, the Park and Peek ticket is a great way for up to five people to come along and see the many vehicles in the exhibition from a distance, use the toilet facilities and grab a drink or bite to eat at the Filling Station café within Great British Car Journey.

The new ticket is designed to be used by visitors attending the many car club events and meets held in the Great British Car Journey car park. In addition to the hugely popular Great British Car Meet event, which attract hundreds of visitors and cars, the museum car park is also used as a meeting point by a wide range of car clubs, including Morgan, Volvo, Porsche.

Upcoming car park events include Great British Car Meets (30 June).

Great British Car Journey is also hosting visits from Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club (17 June), Jowett Club (18 June) and Jaguar Drivers Club East Midlands (24 June).

For Park and Peek visitors keen to get up close to the 140-strong classic car exhibition within the Great British car Journey, the ticket price can be redeemed against entry to the attraction on the door.

As well as getting to see the myriad of makes and models on display in the car park, the new Park and Peek ticket also allows visitors to use the onsite cafe and toilet facilities at the attraction as well as view, from a distance, the 140-strong classic car exhibition within the museum.

Richard Usher, Founder and CEO of Great British Car Journey explained: “We regularly have many great vehicles in our car park thanks to our regular Car Meets and visiting car clubs that provoke as much interest outside as in the attraction.”

“More often than not, visitors upgrade their ticket to entry once they have seen the exhibition and realised that it is not a bland ‘don’t touch’ museum, rather people can open the doors of the cars, look at the interiors and inhale that old car smell. It’s a real trip down memory lane.

  • Someone bought me an entrance ticket to the GBCJ as a gift as I am a big car fan and I absolutely loved my visit there ! Talk about a trip down memory lane,there are some fantastic cars there and I remember well owning some of the same models when I was younger. I had a brilliant day despite the bad weather and finished off with a drive around in a Mk3 Capri (I’ve owned 10 of them !). I will be visiting again in the future and I took a handful of leaflets to give out as I attend all the local car shows in Chesterfield. Highly recommended if you have a passion for cars from the 50s 60s 70s 80s onwards,the likes of which we will never see on our roads again. Thank you.
