Mind-boggling range of historic cars (mainly Ford) and trucks / lorries. Each exhibit labelled, with plenty of background explanations. Needs three or four hours to get round all of it. Excellent cafe.

What a fantastic transport museum. Lots to see and very well played out. Allow at least 3 hours to view this display. About 4 km from centre of town on main street.

Had lunch at Grilled which was delicious and then headed into the museum. A comprehensive collection. Beautifully presented. Time well spent. Loved the homage to Goodbye Pork Pie that was also included.
