For three decades this famous racing track, placed like a giant footprint in the Surrey countryside, just 20 miles south west of London, was the centre of British Motor Sport. The two and half mile circuit with its two massive concrete bankings was the very epitome of speed and captured the imagination of the period. What happened at Brooklands was news and the drivers that raced there became household names. In the summer of 1906 at a dinner party with some influential friends in the motoring world, Hugh Locke King found that he had volunteered to build, at his own expense and on his own land, the world's first purpose-built motor-racing track. The Museum displays a wide range of Brooklands-related motoring and aviation exhibits ranging from giant racing cars, motorcycles and bicycles to an unparalleled collection of Hawker and Vickers/ BAC-built aircraft, including the Second World War Wellington Bomber, Viking, Varsity, Viscount, Vanguard, VC10, BAC One-Eleven and the only Concorde with public access in South East England. Brooklands hold a wide range of special events, mainly on weekends and during school holidays. These include car club visits (often with Test Hill in action), Auto Italia Italian Car Day,The Brooklands Double Twelve Motorsport Festival, aviation events and car rides on weekdays during school holidays.
