Brooklands Museum to re-open for Members on 30th July
22 July 2020
It’s time to ‘Get back behind the wheel’ as Surrey’s most famous historical site and home to an incredible collection of cars and aircraft, is set to reopen its doors after 4 months of closure.
Fans of Brooklands are now able to book tickets in advance to step back in time and see up-close, the cars that raced across Brooklands’ famous race circuit over a hundred years ago. The aircraft on display were all built at Brooklands, including the Hurricane, the Wellington Bomber and of course Concorde.
Whilst some new safety procedures and hygiene measures have been put into operation, the site, renowned for its quirky charm will see many of its key exhibits out of the sheds and on display outside. Not forgetting the army of exceptional volunteers that are ready and waiting for visitors to get under the bonnet of the place again.
Brooklands’ famous motoring and aviation events are still postponed for the moment but this summer promises a great Brooklands experience with a few surprises to boot.
