In a purpose-built new home 2 miles south of Newby Bridge, this car museum houses a wonderful collection of antique cars: classic (Minis, Austin Healeys, MGs), sporty (DeLoreans, Audi Quattros, Aston Martins) and downright odd (Scootacars, Amphicars).

A separate building explores the history of Donald and Malcolm Campbell's record attempts on Coniston Water, with replicas of the original 1935 Bluebird car and the 1967 boat, Bluebird K7 .

The museum is on the A590 from Newby Bridge towards Kendal. The X35 (hourly Monday to Saturday, three on Sunday) from Newby Bridge to Ulverston and Kendal stops nearby.
