Sammy Miller MBE
Sammy Miller is a motorcycling legend, 11 times British Champion, winner of over 1400 events and still winning competitions more than 50 years after his first victory. 

The Museum
The Museum houses one of the finest collections of fully restored motorcycles in the world, including factory racers and exotic prototypes, with the collection constantly evolving as new bikes are acquired. Take a look around our Racing Hall, Road Bike Hill and our Sports Bike Hall - we even have Norton Collection!  Our new 10,000 sq ft two storey extension was completed jut days before Lockdown!  Covering two floors which includes the brand new Belstaff Heritage Corner and the British Motorcycle Charitable Trust, our new archive area, sectional engines and much much more!

This is a living museum with almost every motorcycle in the museum in full running order.  Sammy demonstrates the bikes at race circuits in the UK and at Museum event days. 

Parking is FREE.

COVID Secure - We have strict Social Distancing and Cleaning Procedures in place so you can be confident when you visit us.  We are operating a queueing system when we are busy with admissions, which are at 5 minute intervals, and follow a one way system in the Museum.

Please Note:  Last admission into the Motorcycle Museum is at 13.30. 

The Animals

At the Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum, it is not just things with wheels - we are also home to alpacas, goats, chickens, donkeys, sheep, turkeys, and ducks! You can visit our animals around the complex in their updated enclosures.  We would prefer our visitors not to feed our animals as they are suitably fed every day and too much food thrown in their pens has made some of them unwell.  Thank you.

Bashley Manor Tearooms

Whilst you are at Sammy Miller's, make sure that you visit Bashley Manor Tearooms!  Enjoy a full english breakfast, a light lunch, cream tea or a slice of homemade cake. Children's portions are also available.  For full details visit their website

Craft & Gift Shops

Our 3 craft and gift shops in the Courtyard have much to entice so pop in when you are here and have a browse.  Krafty Korner, Gifts With A Smile and Seahorse Yarns.
