Bexhill Museum


Bexhill Museum offers something for everyone from local history and archaeology to fashion and Bexhill's motor heritage The Technology collection is devoted to celebrating Bexhill’s role as the birth place of British Motor racing. You can see three vehicles representing different eras and technology: a reproduction steam driven 1902 Serpollet or ‘Easter Egg’, a 1958 mk III Elva sports racing car and the 1993 world record breaker Volta electric car. There are hands on displays so you can have a go at changing a car’s tyre, installing spark plugs and see how engines work. It was the 8th Earl De La Warr who secured the town’s place in history by hosting Britain’s first automobile races on the 19th May 1902 so you can see plenty of memorabilia about the Birthplace of British motor racing.


Opening Times: Tuesday to Sunday: 11:00am to 4:00pm.
