Located on the A6 on edge of Derbyshire's beautiful Peak District National Park, Great British Car Journey tells the story of the rise and fall of the British motoring industry from the early 1900s to the turn of the century.
Open throughout the year, the award-winning attraction boasts a collection of more than 140 modern British classics, including Elton John’s Bentley Continental T and Lord Baden Powell's Rolls-Royce, as well as some cars with very special back stories.
Beginning with the 1902 Arrol-Johnston and ending with a McLaren 650S, the Great British Journey features all the classics to the lesser-known vehicles, like the Gilbern and Austin Atlantic as well as the quirky and iconic, including the Austin Seven, Peel P50, DeLorean Morris Minor and Frisky.
Each vehicle tells a story and visitors are guided around the exhibition with a unique handheld audio visual device which transports them through a hundred years of British car design and manufacturing.
The attraction also features a café, gift shop and ample free parking as well as an engineering bay where visitors can view Great British Car Journey's vehicle specialists working on classic cars.
In addition to the exhibition, Great British Car Journey is also home to the unique driving experience Drive Dad's Car.
From just £49.00, Drive Dad’s Car gives you the opportunity to get behind the wheel of 38 of the most popular cars ever made in Britain, including the Sunbeam Rapier Convertible, a rare original Avenger and Rolls Royce Silver Spirit to the Ford Capri, Reliant Robin and, of course, the original MK1 Mini.
Free entry to the Great British Car Journey for the driver is included with every Drive Dad’s Car experience purchased. Guests of the driver also receive discounted entry too!
Book tickets online or turn up on the day and purchase from reception.
