Summer at Brooklands Museum
Ready, Set, Go. It’s full speed ahead at Brooklands Museum this Summer
If you’re looking for somewhere to go this summer that guarantees lots to keep everyone entertained, whilst ensuring that they burn off lots of energy in the outdoors, then Brooklands Museum is definitely the place for you.
Our popular Summer Fete activities will be back on the Paddock Lawn, step back in time to enjoy the games of your childhood such as Swingball, Hopscotch, and Quoits. Compete for a place on the winner’s podium or just settle down in the sun on a deckchair whilst eating ice-cream, or sip on a cool drink and watch the world go by.
This Summer also sees the return of our famous car rides, pedal planes, and Concorde Experience tours. London Bus Museum will be joining in the fun, running vintage bus trips throughout the Summer.
Meanwhile, fans of the Museum’s very own T.V series Secrets of the Transport Museum will be able to meet the stars of the episodes as we rev-up the engines and take our favourite cars and motorbikes out to the track and give them a spin in our live vehicle demonstrations.
