The London Motorcycle Museum is a great find in Greenford, England. It’s on the western side of Greater London. Jen and I were taking a holiday in England and Scotland in June, 2011. The LMM is open only on weekends, which meant that we had to visit on the Saturday that we arrived in the UK at Heathrow Airport. The LMM isn’t very far from Heathrow – about a 10-15 minute drive by car.
Here is the building from the outside. The carpark is inside the walled courtyard in front.
The collection is mainly British marques, but there is a nice variety of bikes on display.
There are a few bikes with interesting significance.
There was a barn in the back of the property. One of the staff members took us through to see the bikes in there. I’m not sure if this is typical or a special treat. I think they may want to have a staff person on hand to keep an eye on things.
There are some good examples of very vintage machines.
The London Motorcycle Museum is certainly worth a visit if you’re in the area. Many great bikes in the collection. I believe there are about 200 on display. The staff is knowledgable and helpful. We drove there by car, but public transportation is close by and accessible. If you’re looking for something a little different in London, this is it.
