I visited this Museum last Sunday for one of their big running day events and i can honestly say that it has to be one of the best Transport events that anyone could wish to attend, although there are a couple of other Museum's who do hold events equally as good ? This Museum has some lovely Vehicles preserved there, along with a nice display of Memorabilia on its walls and in display cabinets etc...

The only downsides to this Museum are its toilets, as the Men's toilets are temporary ones located outside, with no running water to wash your hands afterwards ? The Museum's Bus Conductors were fantastic and made everyone feel very welcome, but the same i'm afraid could not be said for the many members of staff / volunteers who were at the Museum entrance when i first arrived and went just inside the door to pay my entrance fee ! They came across as not really wanting to talk to anyone and when they did acknowledge you, you felt like they were only half listening to what you were saying ? They really should take a leaf out of their Conductor's hat (as far as politeness and being welcoming is concerned !), as i weren't the only person it appears, who wasn't happy with the staff just inside the Museum entrance ! Politeness and a smile costs nothing and without us visitors taking the time and making the effort to visit the place and spend our money there, then where would the place be today hey ??? (Probably closing down !). I do wish the Museum every success, as it's a great place, but some people there definitely do need to learn some customer relation skills, to learn some manners and if possible, gain a sense of humour to, as if not, it could easily put people off ever visiting there again and i'd sincerely hate for that to ever happen ?

Although this attraction was closed on the day we visited, the gentleman who was working there showed us around. So many vintage buses, cars, bikes, motor bikes and more to see. Will definitely return in the summer.

This is a well presnted, clean and tidy bus museum. The staff are friendly and helpful.
Even as someone who isn't a bus enthusiast, this was an ok museum.

We were fortunate enough on the day we went to be able to have a ride in a Jaguar SS, it was a wonderful experience.

what a great and warm welcome received on arrival ,what an fantastic little museum that focusing on the local area with buses and other vehicles . the people that work there have a real passion for it and are happy to help with any information you need , the only down side it that the vehicles are squashed in , the hand book gives a good description of the vehicles on display. looking round the work shop was interesting. make sure you check opening times as it is run by volunteers
