They had a display of a very early motor car there at the time we visited and one of the staff members gave us a full run down of its history. Very interesting

I was surprised to find such a nice presentation of old cars and bikes. It began as a personal collection. It was great to visit a world of yesteryear.

We are so glad you enjoyed the Ransley Veteran Car Collection - you really don't have to be a car buff to enjoy the beauty of the collection :-)

It's great that this town has taken a private collection and made it its own. The entry price is reasonable add you can spend a solid hour here going through the cats, bikes and reading town history. Kids entry for free is a winner!
