LAKELAND MOTOR MUSEUM

LAKELAND MOTOR MUSEUM
LAKELAND MOTOR MUSEUM

Something for the petrol-heads - and a great rainy day option for the Lake District. 30,000 exhibits, including classic cars, bikes and what is claimed to be possibly the largest collection of motoring memorabilia in the world. There are displays, stories, a bit about South Lakeland's industrial past, period shops and a special 'Speed Kings' exhibition - a tribute to the racing Campbells, Malcolm and Donald.

It's also possible to travel to the museum via boat across Windermere and then steam train to Haverthwaite - check their website for details.
