We spent a couple of hours here. If you are interested in vintage vehicles then this place is well worth a visit. There was a quiz for younger children to do and admission was £5 for adults and children were free.

This little museum has some very interesting exhibits, especially busses and trucks, but unfortunately space is limited and the vehicles are not very accessible. The lighting could also be improved.

Although this attraction was closed on the day we visited, the gentleman who was working there showed us around. So many vintage buses, cars, bikes, motor bikes and more to see. Will definitely return in the summer.
