What is the Best Day to Visit?

There is always a lot going on at the Great British Car Journey every day of the week but if you are wondering what would be the best day to visit our interactive museum then you might find the information below useful to help you decide 

If you want to drive a car whilst with us then you need to avoid Mondays, Tuesdays & Sundays and make sure you visit on a day when we are operating either Drive Dads Car or Taster Drives

Taster Drives on
Thursdays & Fridays

If you want to drive one of our “hero” cars or would like to see them being driven by others then it is worth coming on Taster Drive day

Drive Dads Car on Wednesdays & Saturdays

Not only could you drive cars on these days you also get to see lots of classic cars not in the main museum being driven by others

Special Events on
Sundays & Bank Holidays

We have lots of special events and visiting car clubs so you can often get to see a lot of bonus cars if you come on an event day.
