Brooklands Museum

Brooklands Museum is unique. The world’s first purpose-built motor circuit, constructed at Weybridge, Surrey, by wealth landowner Hugh Locke King in 1907, as more than a great sporting arena. Brooklands is also the birthplace of British Motorsport and Aviation, the Home of Concorde and the site of many engineering and technological achievements throughout the first eight decades of the 20th Century.

The Brooklands Museum displays a wide range of Brooklands-related motoring and aviation exhibits ranging from giant racing cars such as the 24-litre Napier-Railton to a unique collection of Vickers/BAC-built aircraft, including the Second World War Wellington Bomber, Viking, Varsity, Viscount, Vanguard, CV10, BAC One-Eleven and, of course, Concorde. Also on site is the London Bus Museum, housing the largest privately-owned collection of London buses in the world.

Highlights of a visit to Brooklands Museum include:

The Clubhouse: Enjoy the period atmosphere of the Member’s Clubhouse which still retains its iconic green dome and is home to the Barbara Cartland Room, the Billiard’s Room, and many displays and exhibits of memorabilia throughout the ground floor.

The Motoring Village: home to the garages and workshops of famous drivers such as Malcolm Campbell, as well as the Grand Prix Collection and the Education centre for schools and pre-booked parties only.

The Test Hill and Track: the Hill was constructed in 1909 for the motor industry to conduct acceleration and braking tests. The remains of the old banked circuit and finishing straight still evoke images of what Brooklands was like in its heyday.

Aircraft & Aviation: home to the Barnes Wallis Stratosphere Chamber as well as the first ever Concorde. Furthermore, the Avro Shed houses an accurate replica of the “Roe 1” Biplane, which AV Roe flew during pioneering flight trials on the Finishing Straight in 1908.

London Bus Museum: operated by the London Bus Preservation Trust, the Bus Museum also houses the largest private collection of London Buses in the world, from the 1890s to the 1970s.
