In and Around London... The London Motorcycle Museum


The Monday Photoblog!


Monday is mute on The Daily Constitutional (well, almost mute) – because Monday is the day when we post five images captured in and around London by London Walks Guides and London Walkers.

Collated on a theme or an area, if you've got some great shots of our capital and want to join in send your pictures to the usual address.



A very pleasant surprise last Monday, while walking the Capital Ring on a day off, was to stumble upon the London Motorcycle Museum.

Even for a non-petrol head such as I, this modest museum at South Greenford, was a treasure. And a great welcome, too.

The museum has no funding, and is run by a dedicated bunch whose classic British motorbikes form the bulk of the collection. Entry is £5 and a cup of tea is free – although they do ask for a donation for Cancer Research.

As I said, nice guys – the museum is unfunded yet instead of raising money for themselves they're doing it for others.

They are open Saturday, Sunday and Monday and their website is at www.london-motorcycle-museum.org. You can follow them on Facebook HERE.
