Brooklands Museum, Surrey

My four year old is crazy about transport- anything with wheels- and especially emergency vehicles, so imagine the excitement this morning when we rocked up to the annual Emergency Services Day at Brooklands Museum…off-the-scale!

Brooklands Museum (next door to Mercedes World) in Weybridge is a treat for transport enthusiasts at the best of times as exhibits show the history and evolution of everything from bikes too aeroplanes. There is a lot to do – we spent four hours but could have stayed longer – and the entry is reasonable at £16/£9 for adults/kids- under 5s are free.

Brooklands is fun, interactive, educational and entertaining. My 6 year old daughter loved all the dressing up, driving and hands-on exhibits – I love the fact that it is an exciting day out full of STEM activities.

The annual Emergency Services Day brings together every possible emergency vehicle you can think of! From current and classic fire engines to search and rescue boats, it is hands-on, noisy (think kids with sirens, bells and horns) and the police officers, paramedics, firefighters are all very friendly and encouraging – my two loved wearing their hats and fiddling in the glove box! If that’s not enough, Fireman Sam puts in an appearance (or three throughout the day) too.
