Museum Profile

Heritage Motor CentreHeritage Motor Centre MuseumThe Heritage Motor Centre opened in 1993, which brought together the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust’s preserved car collection, previously split between offices in Studley in Warwickshire and a museum in Syon Park in London. Since then, the centre has continued to grow, also incorporating an extensive business conference centre and a leading location for many classic vehicle events throughout the year, alongside Land Rover off-road experiences.

Jaguar Heritage at the MuseumIn 2012, in reaction to the Jaguar Heritage museum closing, the Heritage Motor Centre created a new area to house ten important cars from the collection. The vehicles are still owned by the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, but are now given dedicated space in the museum for the public to enjoy.

Today the museum is the world’s largest collection of British Cars with nearly 300 classic cars in the collection.

Protecting Britain’s Automotive History

Heritage Motor Centre MuseumAs well as the museum’s classic car display, the Heritage Motor Centre also incorporates a restoration workshop; an extensive archive of historic documentation from the automotive industry; and associated services, such as heritage certificates for many British classic cars, which is a certified copy of the entry against the chassis number in the authentic factory ledgers.
