Katie Lister | A trip to Brooklands Museum

A trip to Brooklands Museum

March 23, 2017

Last weekend was grey and overcast, so we decided to head to Brooklands Museum in Weybridge with our three year old daughter and ten-month old boy. I can't believe we hadn't been there before - it was a fantastic day out and I don't think we even scratched the surface.

The museum is vast and filled with planes, cars and buses to explore - a child's delight! My daughter loved climbing up the stairs to each of the airplanes and walking through cabin, viewing the cockpit, then running on to find the next plane.

I'm no transport-nut, but I found it fascinating to see Concorde in real life, and would love to return child-free to take the tour one day. This is a bookable extra but no doubt worth the effort.

Also on-site at Brooklands is the London Bus Museum. This comprises a warehouse of historical buses, many of which you can climb aboard. On the day of our visit some of the buses were just returning form a film set, which sounded quite exciting!

The undoubted highlight for my daughter was a ride on the top deck of a Routemaster bus, which went all the way to Weybridge high street and back.
