Reasons for trip

Seen the brochure on many previous visits to the area so I made a special effort on this occasion to pay them a call..

I spent a good four hours at the site which is laid out as a working circular street scene and was very pleased to see a trolley bus, a tram and a diesel bus all operating a free bus ride service around the museum grounds.

Although there are many other forms of transport at the museum it is largely buses that are the backbone of the museum and almost all of them donated by various councils from the UK and a few other countries around the world.

Carlton Coleville has one of the largest collections of preserved vehicles of any museum, further exhibits are still accepted from time to time at the site, unfortunately some are kept off site due to lack of storage facilities and are not available for public viewing.

Viewing of the restoration areas is restricted for obvious reasons but can be viewed from outside, I think the day I went was a rest day as there didn't appear to be much restoration gong on that I could see.

On site there is the usual café, gift shop and toilet facilities and a small garden with seats should you choose to rest awhile. Admission is seniors £6.50 Adults £7.50 and I believe children £3.50.

Certainly worth a trip if your in the area and its a nice sunny day.. Oh, and they do have facilities for the disabled, including bus rides though I didn't see anyone taking advantage of them on my visit.
