My Visit to Lakeland Motor Museum

Lakeland Motor Museum is located in the beautiful Lakes District of England. Here is the story of my visit there.

Yep, this is definitely the place! As I walked in the front door my eye caught a sign which definitely bore looking into later.

First impression when walking in is that there is a LOT of stuff in here! There are cars everywhere, Bikes and period paraphernalia all over the walls, aircraft hanging from the ceiling! I could be here much longer than I had anticipated.

I started walking through the corridors between the exhibits - here are some of the cool cars and other stuff that I found.

A beautiful old Royal Enfield

Ford Model T Truck

1913 Star 12hp

Donald Campbells 1937 Bentley 4 1/2

1937 Jaaaaaaguar SS 100

1955 Jaaaaaaguar XK140FHC

Struggling to find words.. Interesting, maybe?

2000 TVR Speed 12 - Stunning!

1953 Ford Popular

Plenty of 3-wheelers to see!

The famous Mini Cooper!

1960 MGA Roadster with a couple of suspicious looking occupants

The quirky 1966 Amphicar - very handy for flooded roads!

A really nice Citroen DS

And a lovely 2CV

And one of Jezzas all-time favourites, the Peel P50!

A lovely Triumph TR5

Hundreds of great Models too!

A view from Upstairs

Quite a few of those new-fangled flying machines too.

A few more models :)

Even Bicycles - Lakeland has some of EVERYTHING!

Dozens and dozens of beautiful vintage and veteran Motorbikes

I can't remember what year this Scott was, but I think it was early 20's. And just LOOK at that styling and detail. Just amazing.

A Stunning 1931 MG M Type Midget

A 1983 Bamby - I've never seen one before.

The obligatory DeLorean

There was SO much more, but now I'll take you for a quick trip over the Bluebird Exhibition

A replica of Sir Malcolm Campbells 1935 Bluebird Car, which set a Land Speed Record of over 300mph.

A replica of Sir Malcolm Campbells 1939 Bluebird Boat, which set a long-standing Water Speed Record of 141.74 mpg

A Replica of Donald Campbells 1967 Jet Hydroplane K7. Donald died in the real version of this boat, trying to set a World Speed Record of over 300mph.

And here's the end :( of your super-short tour of Lakelands. There is SO much more to discover than I have shown here. If you get a chance - GO! I really enjoyed myself, and you will too!
