British Motor Museum celebrates Drive It Day by offering museum entry discount for classic cars

The national Drive It Day is taking place on Sunday 24th April, and the British Motor Museum is offering discounted museum entry to owners who arrive in a classic car to celebrate! 

Drive It Day will be supporting the NSPCC ChildLine again to raise funds for the charity. In 2021 Drive It Day raised a massive £40,000 for NSPCC ChildLine through support from clubs and Rally Plate sales.

Created by the Federation of British Historic Vehicles Clubs in 2005 to celebrate the One Thousand Mile Trail organised in 1900 to prove the viability of the invention of the motor vehicle. Drive It Day also aims to raise awareness and support for the historic vehicle movement, keep vehicles of interest on UK roads, and raise money for amazing charities and causes.

A very special 1899 Wolseley voiturette 'OWL' driven by Herbert Austin, which took part in the first ever 1000-mile trail, is also on display in one of the British Motor Museum's collections called 'Time Road'.

Classic vehicles taking part in Drive It Day will have reserved parking at the front of the Museum. Visitors are also welcome to view the vehicles outside or pay to enter the Museum and cafe. Pre-booking is advised as it offers the best value, participants can use the discount code ‘DRIVEITDAY’ to receive £2 off Museum entry or pay full price and get an annual pass at no additional cost. British Motor Museum Members, Premium Members, and Annual Pass Holders enter for free.
