Another museum set in a beautiful setting blessed with many food options is the Cotswolds Motor Museum in Bourton-on-the-Water.

In the beautiful setting of Bourton-on-the-Water you'll find the hidden gem that is the Cotswold Motoring Museum & Toy Collection. A popular tourist destination, Bourton is a great place to visit for a day trip, with plenty to see and do in and around the village.

The Museum

You'll discover over 50 vehicles including cars, motorcycles, pedal cars and caravans displayed in seven galleries covering more than 7,500 sq. ft.! The Museum is a truly fascinating journey through the 20th Century, overflowing with vintage vehicles, hundreds of original enamel signs and an intriguing collection of motoring curiosities. It's also home to TV's superhero car Brum, whose adventures start and end at the museum, and can now be found there every day.

The wonderful toy collection also represents the Museum's passion for travel. From old favourites from year's gone past to more modern items, you will be enchanted by the great display of toys and games. After your visit, don't miss the gift shop which is jam packed with pocket money treats and collectables including Brum memorabilia and souvenirs.


SUMMER OF LOVESummer of Love 2017 exhibition

This new exhibition transports you back to 1967 and the Summer of Love – a time when people wore flowers in their hair and the hippy anthem, San Francisco by Scott McKenzie, filled the airwaves. Based around the Land Rover Carawagon, this funky display has been put together to channel the cool, groovy vibe of the era. So come and enjoy the sights, sounds and heady patchouli aromas of this psychedelic moment in history. The exhibition runs from 25 March – September 2017.

The Cotswold Motoring Museum also forms part of the Cirencester March Hare Festival this year. The museum has decorated a 5ft-tall sculpture and the design is inspired by the flower-power theme. Make sure you get a selfie with their new friend during your visit!


The Cotswold Motoring Museum is open from 10am to 6pm seven days a week, from 14 February to mid December.
