21 Years, 21 Icons' At The Heritage Motor Centre

July 1, 2014

An exhibition called '21 years, 21 icons' is on show from now until the end of December at the Heritage Motor Centre Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire. The display is a celebration of 21 iconic people and products that shaped the British motoring industry.

The exhibition explores British vehicles, the innovators behind them and the inventions that changed driving. Among the collection of vehicles are the exquisite Jaguar E-type and the hugely iconic black taxi cab. Tyres and cat's eyes are among the iconic British inventions, while Sir Alec Issigonis and William Morris both have places on the exhibition's wall of fame.

The exhibition looks at each of the 21 icons in great detail, exploring their history and uncovering why they are so significant to the British motoring industry. The lives of legendary racing driver Stirling Moss and Lotus boss Colin Chapman are also explored in the exhibition.

The display includes some hands-on features, as well as the opportunity for visitors to share their opinions on who - or what - they personally consider to be British motoring icons.

Aside from the '21 years, 21 icons' exhibition, visitors can explore the museum's collection of almost 300 cars, which include veteran, vintage and classic British vehicles from bygone eras. In fact, the museum boasts the largest British classic car collection the world, so it really is a must-visit for anyone interested in the history of British motoring.

The museum opens from 10am - 5pm. Tickets are £12 for adults, £10 for concessions and £8 for children aged between 5 and 16. Children under the age of 5 go free. More information can be found on the website:
