Automobilia, Library & Archive

The collection is so much more than cars and motorcycles.

Objects relating to motoring can be found throughout our exhibitions including petrol pumps, car parts, tools, equipment, models, clothing, advertising and artwork. These items stir up as many impressions and memories of the past as the vehicles themselves, and help to present a more holistic view of motoring history.

We are proud to own a vast Archive of printed material relating to motor cars and motorcycles from the very earliest days of motoring. It contains books, manuals, magazines, leaflets, brochures, press releases, images and much more.

Access to the Archive is subject to prior appointment (please contact the Curatorial Department for further details 01963 440804.
