Motor Museum online: information and bookings
Visit Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum and see our fascinating collection of over 1000 swans, geese and ducks from all over the world, along with a superb collection of gleaming Veteran, Edwardian and Vintage Cars and Motorcycles.
You can observe art at work with our resident glass sculptress, woodcarvers, jewellery maker and others. If you love architecture or interior design, or just like to browse, then visit Bentley House, a Palladian-style mansion restored by Raymond Erith, with the Philip Rickman Gallery, containing a collection of over 150 watercolours by the celebrated Sussex artist.
ividing a series of 'rooms' in a reflection of the house. But to get right away from it all, take a relaxing walk around Glyndebourne wood, a mixture of conifers and broad-leaved trees interspersed with sunny glades which are carpeted with bluebells in May.
A new trail with interactive boards makes learning about wildlife and woodland management fun! Plus with a childrens' adventure playground, gift shop, and café, with tempting home-made fayre, Bentley is a complete family day out!
