Loved the museums layout and exceptional bikes and cars on display. Great place to learn about the British car industry and specifically about Coventry. If you are a Jaguar enthusiast, love Triumphs, or want to see the world's fastest car, this is a must visit.

There are a number of ones in easy reach including a Premier, Ibis, Ramada and lots of guest houses. Premier Inn at Belgrade Plaza is less than a 10 minute walk away. Hope that helps.

Hello, we came in on a day coach trip so cannot answer your question about nearby parking. Didn't appear to be any in the immediate vicinity of the museum, although multi storey not too far away
