The Lakeland Motor Museum

Check availability

All the family will be able to pick out their personal favourite – with over 30,000 exhibits it’s no mean feat!

The collection is a real testament to UK motoring heritage with cars spanning over a manufacturing period of 100 years. There’s even a 1920s garage with a collection of old spanners, trolley jacks and puncture repair equipment.

The Bluebird Exhibition

Our favourite is the Campbell Bluebird Exhibition celebrating the 21 world land and water speed records that Malcolm and Donald Campbell secured in their series of cars and boats, with a full sized replica of  the 1935 Bluebird car, the 1939 boat and 1976 jet hydroplane.
