New interactive experience, the Great British Car Journey is back on track with over 150 classic cars ready to be exhibited and set to open in May.

A brand-new classic car visitor attraction is set to open in Derbyshire next month. Great British Car Journey is a 150-car museum that also offers you the chance to drive a selection of classic cars. The Drive Dad’s Car feature will allow visitors to go for a drive on the 4 acre site with an instructor in a selection of over 30 British cars including a number of classic Fords — a Mk3 Escort 1.3L, Mk3 Fiesta 1.1 and Capri 1.6 Laser.

Located beside the River Derwent and within the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, it’s the brainchild of former Auto Windscreens and Blyton Park circuit owner, Richard Usher, and takes visitors on an interactive journey through the golden years of British car design and manufacturing from the 1930s – 1990s using a unique audiovisual device.

The exhibition is due to open on Saturday, May 22 — find out more at
