Brooklands is unique, the world's first purpose-built motor circuit constructed in Weybridge in 1907 by wealthy landowner Hugh Locke King. It is more than a great sporting arena as it is the the birthplace of British Motorsport and Aviation, the home of Concorde and the site of many engineering and technological achievements throughout eight decades of the 20th century. The Museum displays a wide range of Brooklands-related motoring and aviation exhibits ranging from giant racing cars such as the 24-litre Napier-Railton to a unique collection of Vickers/BAC-built aircraft including the Second World War Wellington Bomber , Viking, Varsity, Viscount, Vanguard, VC10, BAC One-Eleven and of course, Concorde. Also on site is the London Bus Museum housing the largest privately owner collection of London buses in the world. And not a lot of people know that!!!
