This new state-of-the art Museum houses fascinating information about the amazing vehicles that have made it into the record books at the Pendine Sands Museum of Speed.The location of the museum is awe-inspiring as it sits right on the edge of the famous sands.

From travelling large object displays such as the legendary ‘Babs’ racing car to the interactive displays throughout, you are taken on a journey where you’ll experience the thrill and exhilaration of racing along Pendine Sands.  Just close your eyes and you’ll feel the wind in your face, hear the noise of the engine and feel the movement of the car as it bumps over hidden pits in the sand.

The new museum offers an exhilarating experience through an array of modern interactive exhibits including those in a video cave, those in the digital hub located on a mezzanine floor with its stunning panoramic views of the beach as well as physical artifacts from the past

Land Speed records at Pendine Sands
Pendine sands have a nearly 100-year history of setting land speed records; beginning in the 1920s with Sir Malcom Campbell and his car ‘Blue Bird’ to more recently the actor Idris Elba taking on Campbell's 'Flying Mile' record in a Bentley Continental GT Speed in 2015.

This amazing stretch of sand has seen many land-speed records set and then broken. Perhaps the most famous being by Sir Malcolm Campbell in 1923 in his car “Blue Bird” and J.G Parry Thomas in his car “Babs”. Since then, it still plays host to land speed records (Garden Sheds to Motorbikes), international events (classic cars to American Hod Rods) and is regularly used by film and TV companies (Top Gear to Idris Elba).

Venue Hire
The Museum’s first floor purpose-built function space features a huge floor to ceiling window with unparalleled views down Pendine’s seven-mile sands. 

The 64m² room can be set out in boardroom style (20 pax) or theatre style (50 pax), with independent electrical blinds that easily adapt it for video conferencing, presentations, or live streaming.  Its contemporary furniture, accessibility, private kitchenette, free WiFi and included AV make it suitable for a range of functions.  Refreshments can be served in the room, or you can pre-order lunch to be served in the Caban restaurant.
