The National Motorcycle Museum

The National Motorcycle Museum is recognised as the finest and largest British motorcycle museum in the world and originally opened its doors in October 1984 with a collection of 350 motorcycles on display. The Museum owes its formation to the drive and ambition of one man, Mr WR (Roy) Richards. Roy passed away in 2008 but his work continues under the guardianship of Roy’s Widow Christine & Son’s Simon and Nick with The Museum collection now boasting some 1000 plus machines, fully restored to the manufacturers original specifications.

Since opening, this magnificent centre has become the largest motorcycle museum in the world and attracts around 250,000 visitors a year. One of the biggest attractions for many guests is the comprehensive cross-section of British machines, spanning the “60 Glorious Year” of motorcycle manufacturing in this country. The museum’s aim is to preserve these pieces of history for future generations to come, as a reminder of this great nations industry, engineering prowess and work ethic.

At some point over the past 30 years many of the UKs classic bike enthusiasts will have spent an afternoon browsing through the museums halls, and many clubs and organisations having held rallies and events in the grounds. The National Motorcycle Museum has developed into a focal point for the British Motorcycle movement & is conveniently located in the heart of the Midlands Transport Network, with Birmingham  International railway station just a five-minute taxi ride away.

Not only the largest collection of British Motorcycles in the World but The National Motorcycle Museum is also one of the UKs largest conferencing and events facilities. The award winning conference centre has 13 purpose built suites available, including the Wardroom, seating small parties of up to 20 guests, and the Imperial Suite which can host 1000. The Museum also owns  two local hotels, The Manor Hotel at Meriden (home of the old Triumph works) and The Windmill Village Hotel & Spa in Coventry.
