A visit to the Haynes International Motor Museum and the Fleet Air Arm Museum. A packed social event full of interest.
For those travelling from further afield accomodation will be available.
Arrive at 10.30 am at the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Yeovilton BA22 8HT. It is a large exhibition containing four halls packed with exhibits through the eras of aircraft history. It is devoted to the history of British naval aviation. It has an extensive collection of military and civilian aircraft, aero engines, models of aircraft and Royal Navy ships, and paintings and drawings related to naval aviation.
After our visit here we will go to the Haynes International Motor Museum at Sparkford BA 22 7LH for a light lunch in their café and subsequent visit. John Haynes, of automobile manual publishing fame, created the museum because his collection was getting too big for his home. There are over 400 restored cars in the collection which is well presented and cared for in a magnificent building – nostalgia at its best. We will also have a special tour of the restoration workshop in action. This Car Club event will end at 4.30pm
That is the end of the Car Club event but if you would like to extend your visit we have arranged a Car Club dinner at the Kings Arms Hotel, 49 Bishopston, Montacute, Somerset TA 15 6UU at 7pm. 01935 822255
