An interesting and eclectic collection of vintage and more modern cars. A must to prebook a tour which is well organized and led by a knowledgeable museum guide. Duration of tour 60 to 90 minutes.

Definitely worth a visit but make sure you book ahead as it's by appointment only. 4 large buildings with immaculately prepared cars (and they all are driveable) in lovely grounds

Visited museum again this year we love it. Cars rotated so new ones to look at. Then off to Anthony Rupert for wine tasting just up the road or on the wine tram.
