Brooklands Museum is the perfect place to inspire your students with a wide variety of visual and tactile stimuli.
The powerful images of Concorde, sitting against an open air background, or the Napier Railton, one of the fastest cars of its day, plus the unique style of the Clubhouse provide students the opportunity to explore space, perspective drawing, colour, tones and angles.
For groups interested in technical drawing, the Wellington Hangar and the Stratosphere Chamber provide an opportunity to study an array of aeroplanes and engines.
