Hi All

I had a couple of hours to kill today and saw there was a new (to me at least) car museum near Belper in Derbyshire.

https://www.greatbritishcarjourney.com/

I think it is new, they have a decent collection of cars and as part of the entry you get a tablet and earphones with a well organised tour. Also there are QR codes on each vehicle plus other extra items you can select via the tablet. Also decent cafe.

Worth a visit

Peter

It is indeed new, it was being promoted in the press not long ago. There mission is to show everyday British cars that you don't see any more. I used to love the Stondon Transport Museum for that before it all got sold off and the site redeveloped.

That's gone on the list of places I need to visit - thanks


I'm really hoping this place survives Covid https://www.internalfire.com/ I've been meaning to go for ages

Hi Stuart

Interesting, I supplied some computer equipment to them around 2013. Good to see they are still going.
