Since opening in 1984 with a collection of 350 motorcyles, this magnificent centre has become the largest motorcycle museum in the world with in excess of 1000 display models and attracts around 250,000 visitors a year. One of the biggest attractions for many guests is the comprehensive cross-section of British machines, spanning the “60 Glorious Years” of motorcycle manufacturing in Britain.
