The fascinating Lakeland Motor Museum nestles in the picturesque Leven Valley, at Backbarrow, close to the southern tip of Lake Windermere.

A diverse and unique road transport collection of some 30,000 exhibits assembled over a period of almost 50 years is thoughtfully displayed alongside many non-motoring additions, in fully DDA compliant state-of-the-art premises with a beautiful riverside setting.

This thought provoking and thoroughly enjoyable attraction, with VisitEngland, VAQAS (Visitor Attraction Quality Assurance Scheme) accreditation, provides a perfect, whatever the weather, all year venue certain to entertain and enthral all ages.

The date of this event will be announced in the next few days. If you are interested please let us know so we have an idea of numbers.

Doors open at 0930 hrs and the Museum is home of the Bluebird Collection.
Ticket entry fees vary , if part of a group of 20 persons or more entry is £6.40 per person.

If we are less than 20 persons prices are £8 per person. There is also the option of entry with a Lake Cruise to Bowness (shuttle bus included).

If a group visitor the price of entry and a Cruise is £10.70 per person and if not part of a group its £16.50 per person. The Cruise goes to Bowness and allows time for shopping etc.

If people go for the Cruise option its best to get the 11am trip which means you get back to the Museum for about 3pm. The Museum closes at 4.30 pm. For those interested in going please email me
