The Great Ticket Giveaway Road Trip

Haynes International Motor Museum, Sparkford and around South Somerset

Haynes International Motor Museum is planning a special road trip in a car from the Museum Collection this Somerset Day (Saturday 11 May) for The Great Museum ticket Giveaway.

We can now reveal that the car chosen bears the same name as the county it is celebrating; the 1954 Austin A40 Somerset.

Apprentice, Matthew Garside is busy restoring the A40 Somerset in the Museum onsite Workshop and Restoration Centre in time for its journey.  Take a closer look at the A40 and hear more from Matt about his work in this short video HERE.

During our nostalgic holiday-makers style journey, we’ll not only be taking in the sights of South Somerset, but also showcasing what makes each place we visit special.

We’ll be highlighting local businesses and iconic views, as well as local traditions, history and folklore. It’s no surprise that Somerset is one of the most popular tourist destinations, with its beautiful scenery and rich history.

The Great Ticket Giveaway!

Come and find us at one of the stops on our journey for a chance to claim one of the one hundred single entry Museum tickets we’re giving away. To find out where we are, simply keep an eye for clues on our social pages, then find us and tell us what you love about Somerset to claim your free ticket.

PLEASE NOTE! A limited amount of tickets will be given away at each stop, so be sure to get to us as soon as you can!
