The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu has
one of the finest collections of cars, motorcycles
and motoring memorabilia in the world. The
270 vehicles in the museum are only the start.
There are over 1.7 million motoring items in our
Collections Centre, and our mission is to use
our collection to tell the story of motoring on
the roads of Great Britain. We want to share
our passion for cars with our marvellous events,
fascinating talks and thought-provoking exhibitions.
The National Motor Museum began in 1952 as
a small display of cars in the entrance of Palace
House – the Montagu family home. From the
earliest motor carriages to the legendary Land
Speed Record holders, the National Motor Museum
collection includes Grand Prix Greats, motorbikes,
cars from the golden age of luxury motoring and
those seen in the movies.
As a charity the National Motor Museum Trust
aims to engage and inspire people through our worldclass
collections. We are committed to promoting
education, research and conservation in motoring
history for the benefit of everyone now and into the
future. Every visit, donation and membership helps
to conserve and preserve our motoring heritage
collections for future generations.
Our stand at the Classic Motor Show will feature the Sunbeam 1000hp - we are restoring the Land Speed vehicle so that it can return to Daytona Beach in 2027 for the 100 year anniversary of Sir Henry Segrave’s 203.792 mph world land speed record - help us raise funds to hear it roar again.
The first book published by the National Motor Museum, Goldie by John Mayhead will also be on our stand. The title tells the amazing story of Goldie Gardner, the world’s most successful speed-record driver.
