Heritage Motor Centre

The Heritage Motor Centre opened in 1993 and it began as the amalgamation of the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust's preserved car collection, which was previously split between offices in Studley in Warwickshire and a museum in Syon Park in London. The Heritage Motor Centre is home to the world's largest collection of British Cars; it boasts nearly 300 cars in its collection which span the classic, vintage and veteran eras and is a mecca for car enthusiasts. The Heritage Motor Centre is situated in Gaydon, Warwickshire, just off junction 12 of the M40. The building itself is a spectacular piece of architecture with an art deco design, and stands proudly in a beautifully landscaped setting of 65 acres, which rolls out onto the Warwickshire countryside.

Author's Review

Britain has a number of motor museums dotted all over the country, small big, some small, but in Gaydon, a sleepy village in the county of Warwickshire is the home of The Heritage Motor Centre. This motor museum truly is the Creme de la Creme, part funded by Land Rover, the Heritage Motor Museum houses hundreds of both vintage and new vehicles, from prototype cars, to cars that have been used in famous films, I originally went to this museum thinking that I could whizz round it in about an hour! More fool me, 3 hours later, and only because I didn't stand and read everything, I came to the end of the museum. With lunch, I would allow a good 4 hours around this museum. This attraction offers both value for money, and visitor experience, which incidentally are two of main features we look for in our Top 100 Attractions.
