British Motor Museum Tour

It was one of our more obvious ideas: why not take our classic cars back to the shrine of British motoring, the aptly named British Motor Museum at Gaydon?  So that is exactly what this road trip does - drive 5 cars from our fleet on a varied route through the Cotswolds with a tour of the British Motor Museum at Gaydon (formerly the Heritage Motor Centre) included.

This is a unique opportunity to drive a number of iconic British classic cars and enjoy lunch and a private tour of the Heritage Centre where they have some of the best cars Britain ever made on display.

British Motor Museum tour 2017

This road trip runs exactly the same way that other Great Escape tours are run with 5 stages and car changes at every stage, 6 hours of scenic driving and the usual Great Escape support, the only difference this time will be a 2 hour stop at the British Motor Museum in Gaydon.


The price of £199 for drivers and £99 for passengers includes a light breakfast, cafe lunch at Gaydon, tour of Gaydon, insurance, fuel and full event support. 

This event is strictly limited to 16 people per date.  Call 01527 893733 or visit our gift shop to book.
