Great British Car Journey

Great British Car Journey is the ultimate trip down memory lane. It charts the journey of car manufacturing and design in the UK through the cars that sat on everyone's drives and in supermarket carparks from the 1930s - 2000.

It's packed full of ordinary cars that have long since disappeared from our roads - the Ford Cortina, Austin Maestro, Vauxhall Chevette and Hillman Imp. All are guaranteed to evoke memories of childhood, family days out and back seat fights with siblings.

There are even some rarer British models - the Gilbern, DeLorean and Elton John's former Bentley.

Located beside the River Derwent in a former wire works factory, there are more than 130 classic British cars, which were at the forefront of a global transport revolution, on display at the family-friendly attraction which also boasts a cafe and gift shop.

You can even take a drive in a selection of over 30 iconic British cars, from the Austin Seven to a Rolls Royce with the Drive Dad's Car Experience
