Brooklands Museum is on the site of the world's first purpose-built motor racing circuit and houses collections of cars, motorcycles and bicycles, particular from the heyday of the track until it closed in 1939.
The Museum displays a wide range of Brooklands-related motoring and aviation exhibits ranging from giant racing cars, motorcycles and bicycles to an unparalleled collection of Hawker and Vickers/ BAC-built aircraft, including the Second World War Wellington Bomber, Viking, Varsity, Viscount, Vanguard, VC10, BAC One-Eleven and the only Concorde with public access in South East England.
Brooklands hold a wide range of special events, mainly on weekends and during school holidays. These include car club visits (often with Test Hill in action), Auto Italia Italian Car Day, The Brooklands Double Twelve Motorsport Festival, aviation events and car rides on weekdays during school holidays.
Brooklands offer a group booking rate available for groups of 15 or more who PRE-BOOK with our groups dept. Virginia Smith. Virginia can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org or 01932 857381 ext. 248. Special arrangements can be made for groups wanting to use the café but it needs to be organised in advance.
The Museum is open every day, apart from 24th - 26th December inclusive.
Inside the Balloon Hangar building, we have created a 4D Theatre that provides the closest experience any living person will have of “driving” around the Brooklands Race Track, at Le Mans or “flying” with the Red Arrows. Visitors to the Museum can now take their seats for the ride of their life in a brand new, state-of-the-art 4D Theatre and we have three fantastic rides for you to enjoy.
The Napier-Railton Race Experience
Just as John Cobb and Sir Malcolm Campbell did in the 1930s, you can now see, hear, feel and even smell what it would have been like to race around the concrete banked circuit in a pre-War racing car. With exclusive access to the track at Montlhéry just outside Paris, this was the ideal choice for filming the action sequences as it remains the closest in structure to the original Brooklands circuit. Together with the team at Metropolis Entertainments it was clear that we had to create the pits and crowds to complete the effect of a 1930s race so a call out for re-enactors in period dress, cars, mechanics and officials was put out through the Museum’s social media channels and its own Membership.
Red Arrows in 3D
Discover the thrill of flying with the RAF Red Arrows during one of its sensational aerobatic displays in ‘Red Arrows 3D’. With stunning high definition 3D vision and flight simulator motion technology, you can see and feel for yourself what it is like in the cockpit as the ‘Reds’ fly in amazing close formation and solo manoeuvres.
A lap of Le Mans in Mike Hawthorn’s Jaguar
British Racing legend Mike Hawthorn is your driver as you take a lap with him in his Jaguar D-type around the circuit at Le Mans. What makes this a unique experience is that you are seeing the actual film and commentary made by Mike at the track on a blistering sunny day in 1956. With an introduction from Tiff Needell who reveals the original car he drove in, this time piece is a gem that will make you believe that you were there.
