Access Guide for the British Motor Museum

Where you have more than one guest with you they will have to buy their entrance ticket at the Museum's standard price. Gaydon recommend you book standard price tickets in advance of the day you would like to visit because they are cheaper in comparison to buying on the day.

> Access Pass - it's needed for entry into the two dedicated MGV8-50 meeting rooms inside the Museum
A personal Access Pass will be issued to each V8 Register member who has booked with the V8 Register to join the MGV8-50 event at Gaydon, and for any guests included in a V8 Register member's booking. You and your guests will need to have your personal Access Passes with you at the event because the Access Pass will need to be presented to our volunteer marshals at the entrance to the two MGV8-50 meeting rooms so you can gain access to the rooms. To get your personal Access Pass, and for a guest attending the event with you, you will have to simply fill in the booking form and click the Send button at the foot of the form. Your data will be sent to the V8 Webmaster who will check your application and then later, nearer the event, send each personal Access Pass to you as an email attachment for you and for any guest attending the event with you who was included in your booking.
