A great array of bikes from the very beginning of biking right up to the late 1980's, all in simply superb order and in nice surroundings. Some of these bikes were so incredibly rare that I had no idea that they'd every been built in the first place. Superb!

It's one for the enthusiasts for sure, but perhaps a little too static to attract the attention of younger visitors and the simply curious. All credit to the work that has gone into these displays, but it would have been nice if there could have been something to spark the interest of younger and non "motorcycle hardcore" visitors. Something interactive and visual. Considering that the newest bike there was the very worthwhile Norton Interpol (Interplod?), something to bring the story right up to the present day, particularly for the British bike industry, would have been a great addition too.

Food at the Cafe was superb and well priced The experience of a recent visitor, that the food was served by disinterested staff, I am pleased to say is definitely no longer the case; they were very professional and attentive.

There were a handful of interesting shops open and the animals were nice for the family to see too. Parking was free, safe, plentiful and very close by. I will be calling by again soon.

When I visited the museum with my father in law we were fascinated by the amount of motorcycles on display from all eras. So many different makes and some I had not even heard of. Bikes on show must cover over 100 years of motorcycling from 1900 to 2000. Spent about 3 hours looking and taking pictures of many bikes. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and had great conversations with them. Sammy was onsite doing a restoration project and even came outside and said hello. If you are into bikes then this museum is a must.
