The Lakeland Motor Museum is a great local attraction with something for all the family.

Besides being in a beautiful location, this modern state-of-the-art museum is a must for all motoring enthusiasts.

Nestled in the scenic Leven Valley the museum is open to visitors seven days a week

The museum opened its doors at its original site at Holker Hall in 1978.

As a consequence, it has welcomed more than 1.5 million visitors.

The current museum is a collection of some 30,000 exhibits collected over a period of 50 years.

The collection is home to more than 150 cars and motorbikes, plus bicycles, pedal cars and other motoring related items.

It is fair to say that the collection will unlock nostalgic memories for everyone.

Furthermore, a separate exhibition is dedicated as a tribute to father and son, Sir Malcolm and Donald Campbell.

The pair between them, captured twenty one world land and water speed records in the Bluebird series of cars and boats.

Donald Campbell was tragically killed on Coniston Water in January 1967, whilst attempting to break his own water speed record.

Highlights include full-size replicas of the Bluebird car built in 1935, the Bluebird K4 boat, and the famous 1967 jet hydroplane, Bluebird K7.

Café Ambio, which is on the same site, overlooks the River Leven and is an ideal spot for something to eat or drink.
