Come to Brooklands Museum on the site of the World’s first purpose-built motor racing circuit and see vintage cars, aircraft, motorcycles and bicycles, with the London Bus Museum also on site. Take a supersonic virtual ‘flight’ on board Concorde – the fastest passenger aircraft ever flown - or drive a McLaren F1 Simulator car! More simulator rides in the 4D Theatre include racing around the Brooklands Track or flying with the Red Arrows. Inside a World War Two Hangar is the Brooklands Aircraft Factory with interactive displays amongst sections of aircraft and exhibits from 80 years of aviation at Brooklands. The Flight Shed houses live aircraft where you can sit in cockpits. Refreshments are served all day in the Sunbeam Café in the 1907 Clubhouse, with free wi-fi available. Brooklands Museum is a 15 minute walk from Weybridge station, a 30 minute journey London Waterloo. Alternatively, it can easily be reached by road with FREE parking and hotels nearby.

A fantastic place, run by a dedicated team of enthusiasts, many of whom are volunteers. They are faithfully maintaining a wonderful history of motorsport and aviation, sharing great depth for adults and making it accessible for kids.
Love this place; cars, buses and planes; helpful, knowledgeable volunteers; some bits the kids can actually get in to the driving seat/cockpit. And on top of all of that, they do events using the hill climb and home straight.
