Lakeland Motor Museum reviews
Fabulous day out, lots to see, especially loved the added details of the shops with the cars parked outside. Definitely value for money as you get to visit the Campbell exhibition as well...

Great place to visit, lovely cars and bikes kept in fantastic condition. Something for everyone and so interesting. Staff were helpful and friendly, made sure we got the most from our visit. Seeing the Bluebird exhibit was a bonus but the best bit was the coffee shop/restaurant - service, coffee and cakes.
Exactly as expected a lovely place to spend a couple of hours looking at old cars, bikes, be bicycles to and lots more. Everything on display was in beautiful but condition and so clean. There is a cafe attached but it was so crowded we did not stop. I'm guessing it might be slightly less crowded on a weekday rather than at the weekend.
