Brooklands, the world’s first purpose-built motor racing circuit, was built at Weybridge, Surrey in 1907. The Museum displays a range of Brooklands-related motoring and aviation exhibits from racing cars, motorcycles and bicycles to a collection of Hawker and Vickers/ BAC-built aircraft, including a WWII Wellington Bomber, Viking, Varsity, Viscount, Vanguard, VC10, BAC One- Eleven and the only Concorde with public access in South East England.

The museum’s special events are mainly on weekends and during school holidays. They include car club visits (often with Test Hill in action), Auto Italia Italian Car Day, The Brooklands Double Twelve Motorsport Festival, aviation events and car rides on weekdays during school holidays.

Groups of 15+ booked at least two weeks in advance cost £9 adults, £8 senior citizens and students and £4.50 children.

Child groups aged four to 11 – one supervising adult admitted free with every six children, or one per 10 for youth groups aged 12 to 16 years. Admission for coach drivers is free.
