Being next to Jaguar Landrover as well as Aston Martin, the main emphasis is on British cars, hence the name. If you want the National motor museum, look up that name. Good selection of cars, with good historical notes, and lots to see.

Apologies, can’t help with that one. There’s a very large car park, so they probably have the space. As suggested elsewhere, give them a bell.
