About

The Abingdon Collection represents over 45 years of passionate collecting and is divided into two very distinct areas of interest.

The first part of the collection focuses on Classic Cars and Motorcycles as follows:

1953 MGTD
1957 MGA Fixed Head Coupe
1968 MGC
1980 MGB
1978 Porsche 911 SC
1986 Opel Manta GTE
1983 Ford Capri 2.8i
1997 BMW 328i (show car)
2010 Mazda MX5 (anniversary model)

Motor Cycles

1972 Triumph Bonneville
1993 Kawasaki 1000 Highway Patrol Bike
2006 Harley Davidson Low Rider
1967 Sidecar unit

All vehicles are in fully restored condition.

The Collection is complemented by over 500 die cast model cars, photographs, enamel signs, jukeboxes, radios and automobilia.

If you lived through the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s or just like big boy’s toys, then there is definitely something here for you.

The second part of the collection concentrates on World War Two and represents one of the largest collections in private ownership, with over 3000 items on permanent display.

Now 7O years after the war ended, many have forgotten the supreme sacrifice that so many had to make. This collection is in memory of them all. The collection also contains many rare exhibits from the First World War trenches and we provide a guided tour through the period. Groups and individuals are very welcome to take a 'walk in the past'.

This collection attracts hundreds of visitors per year and raises considerable funds by donation to Cancer Research. There is no charge and every effort will be made to facilitate visiting groups.
