Located in the picturesque village of Bourton on the Water, the Cotswold Motoring Museum is a fascinating journey through the 20th century that the whole family can enjoy. The Museum is bulging with great cars, quaint caravans, precarious looking motorcycles, enamel signs and an intriguing collection of motoring curiosities! Brum, the BBC TV's little super hero car whose adventures start and end at the museum can be found here every day.

Looks tiny from the outside but is huge on the inside. You will be hard pushed to find another collection of this quality in the UK. Major cars throughout the ages, up until the 80's and motoring memorabilia that is vast, hanging from every nook...More

Interesting and reasonable value. My wife loved seeing Brum. I enjoyed some of the more techy stuff and jaguar landrover history.
