The prestigious Haynes International Motor Museum at Sparkford in Somerset (8 miles from Sherborne) offers an excellent day out for everyone. With more than 350 cars and motor-bikes displayed in stunning style, dating from 1886 to the present day, it is the largest international motor museum in Britain.
For those interested in a nostalgic trip down memory lane, the museum offers a host of familiar names such as Austin, MG and Morris. Whilst for those seeking something more exotic there is a vast array of performance cars, from modern classics such as the Dodge Viper RT10 and the Jaguar XJ220 to the more historic Lamborghini Countach, Jaguar E Type and AC Cobra.
There are also lots of activities for the family including the ‘Top Trumps Trail’ and Autogame Experience where visitors can play arcade games of the 50s and 60s, retro 80s classics such as ‘Sega Rally’ and ‘Manx TT’ to the latest cutting edge technology such as Cycraft, the ultimate race car simulator. Outside there is the ‘Kids’ Race Track’, ‘Super Diggers’, a themed play area, soft play-bus and many other activities.
Throughout the year the museum also hosts lots of exciting events including amazing stunt shows or the chance to go for a dream ride in a supercar.
