Amberley Museum: Motorcycle Show

Dry weather in the morning meant a great turn out of both bikes and visitors to one of the Museum’s most popular annual events on Sunday (7th May).

200 motorcycles of a great range of ages and styles rumbled into place and delighted a large crowd throughout the day.

If you missed it, your next chance for motorbikes at the Museum is at our Historic Transport Gathering on Sunday 8th October, along with a selection of all sorts of vehicles, but if you can’t wait that long, come along this Sunday (14th May) to see commercial vehicles on site.

Also this weekend on Saturday (13th May) we have Art@Amberley which is your opportunity to try tie-dyeing with a difference for just £3 to attend the workshop. Call us to pre-book and get entry for just £5 (standard entry applies on the day).

On event days we have featured exhibits or crafts and the Museum is open as usual. Do check our website for details on all the events being held – there’s something nearly every weekend.

Amberley Museum is a remarkable heritage site in the Sussex South Downs, with 36 acres to explore and over 40 exhibit buildings to visit, focusing on industrial and transport history. Take a ride on the narrow gauge railway and historic bus. Exhibits include the telecommunications hall, electricity hall, working printshop, lime kilns, steam engines and more.

The Museum is home to traditional craftspeople such as the woodturners and blacksmith, with a café, gift shop, nature trails and picnic areas. The Museum is accessibility friendly and dogs are welcome on site. We have been awarded the Kennel Club ‘Best Dog Friendly Attraction Award’ for Days Out 2016.

We are hosting over 50 events in 2017 from children’s activity days to classic vehicle shows. We open until 29th October.
