Bentley Motor Museum

The Bentley Motor Museum is part of the Bentley Wildfowl & Motor Museum, situated just outside Lewes in a peaceful corner of East Sussex. Despite the name, the Bentley Motor Museum has no association with Bentley Motor Cars.

In addition to the Bentley Motor Museum, there is also a wildfowl reserve, living willow tunnels, woods with replica round houses, and an adventure playground. Furthermore, the miniature railway and café are popular highlights, as are the craft workshops, and miniature Shetland ponies.
There are also a number of special events each year at the Bentley Motor Museum. These include a Summer Craft Fair in mid-June, the Bentley Woodfair in mid-September and the Christmas Craft Fair at the end of November. Please see the museum’s website for specific dates of these events each year.
The Bentley Wildfowl & Motor Museum also has its own Miniature Railway. Established in 1985, Bentley Miniature Railway has developed into one of South East England’s hidden treasures. It comprises of a one mile of ground-level 7 1/4″ gauge miniature railway, with a variety of privately owned steam, internal combustion and electric powered locomotives.
All locomotives are either standard or narrow gauge profiles, and they haul public passenger carrying trains every weekend of the year. The Bentley Miniature Railway is built, maintained and operated by unpaid volunteers.
