Themed Events

Themed Events

As a truly interactive museum, telling a story of pioneering achievement in the UK, we are committed to both preserving our automotive heritage and celebrating the glories of its past and present.

Our themed days we encourage owners of particular makes and models to join us in creating a car park full of interest for our daily museum visitors to enjoy. Often we will be celebrating significant anniversaries : Both the Morris Minor and Landrover were launched in 1948 so celebrate 75th birthdays in 2023. We are grateful to car clubs all over the UK for their support in helping us stage these events

On a Themed Event day you can either book ticket to enjoy the full Great British Car Journey experience or just “Park & Peak” at the vehicles outside and enjoy our Filling Station Cafe. Just book your prefered option below
