The multi-award winning Haynes International Motor Museum at Sparkford in Somerset offers fantastic family fun whatever the weather. With more than 400 cars and bikes displayed in stunning style, dating from 1885 to the present day, it is the UK’s largest exhibition of great cars from around the world.

For those interested in a nostalgic trip down memory lane, the museum offers a host of familiar names such as Austin, MG, and Morris. Those who are seeking something more exotic will be pleased to find a vast array of performance cars, from modern classics such as the Dodge Viper RT10 and the Jaguar XJ220, to the more historic Jaguar E Type and AC Cobra. Also on show is a large collection of American cars, including the jewels in the crown of Haynes – the V16 Cadillac, and the multi-million-dollar Duesenberg.

For the children there are racing cars, Volkswagen campers, ice-cream vans, diggers, and even a soft play area all waiting for youngsters to enjoy in the family entertainment zone within the grounds of the museum. Complete your visit in Café 750, serving a variety of freshly made meals, snacks and drinks all day.

The museum is open 7 days a week, and is easily accessible, being situated just off the A303 north of Yeovil.
