There is a variety of speggtacular fun at Brooklands Museum over the Easter Holiday period from 6-17 April. Pick up your free Easter egg trail on arrival, head
off around the Museum to solve the hidden clues and then head back to the Shop to claim your FREE chocolate prize.

We wanted to find out why Gerald’s journey is so appealing to children and what we can all learn about dancing to our own music. So Time & Leisure Junior spoke to Sophie Coward who plays Gerald.

The Museum’s long-established and hugely popular rides in vintage style cars and on London Bus Museum’s iconic double-decker buses will also be operating during weekdays (except Good Friday and Easter Monday).

Car rides take in the challenging summit of Test Hill and the Members’ Banking, the steepest part of the original Race Track or, for a more relaxed journey, hop on board a real double-decker bus for a bus trip through the surrounding streets. Car and bus rides* will run in the mornings and afternoons with a short break for
lunch and are subject to crew and vehicle availability.

Also on the weekdays, any youngsters wanting to join the Brooklands pit crew can head over to the car workshop where they can put on overalls and discover the science behind the speed with an amazing ‘Get Ready to Race’ activity.

You can build your own car with different components and try it down the specially constructed test slope to see how your design would really race.

Join the pit crew

The Concorde Experience is a half‑hour virtual supersonic ‘flight’ on the Brooklands Concorde and runs every day, but on each weekday over Easter, special Kids Tours will be running twice a day.

And don’t forget to explore inside the award-winning Brooklands Aircraft Factory and Flight Shed. Inside the restored WWII hangar, visitors can ‘clock in’ and don factory work coats as they begin their ‘Brooklands Apprenticeship’.

A series of workshops and interactives explore some of the skills used over the 80-year history of aircraft manufacture at Brooklands. On a new mezzanine level, the story of aviation design at Brooklands is told and visitors can design their own military and civilian aircraft from different eras of aviation including those of the future. Leaving the Factory and entering the new Flight Shed visitors can see some of the Museum’s collection of complete aircraft, including opportunities to sit in the cockpits of the Hawker Hunter and Harrier, as well as displays on radar, ground-to-air radio and pioneering pilots.

Make a refuelling stop

The Sunbeam Café is the ideal place for refuelling and add to this a visit to the Museum Shop to pick up a souvenir and you have the recipe for a perfect day out come rain or shine.
