As I write, there is work a-plenty going on at the Brooklands Museum site, renovation and building... I hope it all leads to a better attraction in future because at the moment we found it sadly lacking. The staff were not rude or unhelpful but a bit cold. The Cafe served up tasty but over priced cake with tepid ex-machine... More

Spent the day at Brooklands with my brother and it's fascinating. Not only was it the world's first purpose built racing circuit but played a key role in Britain's post war aviation industry. There is so much to see here it is a full day out. Only a small part of the track remains now but it's very atmospheric. Look... More

Visited during 1/2 term. Busy but not too full. Lots of young children. Food - v good for the price. Lots to see - Concorde, VC10, Viscount and more to explore. Lots of great racing cars, motor bikes and bikes. And more. Many artefacts in working order. Book the Concorde experience early. Red Arrows 4D experience disappointing. And there is... More

A shockingly terrible waste of time. A visit here is like wandering through a retirement home for hoarding motor mechanics. One of those dated places who believe that putting some old cars, buses and bikes in sheds, with a small airplane graveyard and charging you to wander past is some kind of educational experience. It would appear the only thing... More

I went in half-term with my teenage boys and my 70+ mum. We all found things that engaged us and all really enjoyed the day. The Concorde exhibit will be many people's highlight, but I enjoyed just wandering around the old buildings and getting a sense of how Brooklands must have been at it's height, full of creative and adventurous...

The museum is constantly undergoing improvements, currently major, which means that lots has been moved around, under cover and making the best of the overall view of a big complex heritage site: motor racing and aviation. Job due complete in the autumn, but at least visitors see where their money goes. Very interactive for all ages, especially the children who... More

Fabulous day out with two small children. Lots of interactive displays and interesting things to see. The special bit of magic at this museum has to be the team of friendly and enthusiastic volunteers who went out of their way to help us have an enjoyable day. A mixture of indoor and outdoor exhibits. We found it very buggy friendly... More

Traveled all the way to Brooklands, went to pay additional amount (which I think is a rip off) just to go on Concord then told they didn't have any places. Come on Brooklands how hard is it to get a few more volunteers. We went on a very quite day so I wouldn't hold much hope for school holidays.
