Bentley Motor Museum engl.

Oldtimer Museen
The Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum was a family-friendly attraction in East Sussex. It consisted of a car museum, a wild bird sanctuary with one of the finest private bird collections, a miniature railroad, a forest, gardens, a store, a restaurant and much more. The grounds also hosted several special events and activities that made visiting this fantastic place even more enjoyable and exciting. The Bentley Motor Museum had some of the most spectacular vintage cars on display. Vintage motorcycles, bicycles and other vehicles were also on display there. The museum did not have a permanent collection, but instead displayed vehicles owned by private collectors who wanted to make their classics available for the general public to admire. As mentioned earlier, there were plenty of other attractions on the grounds that made it an ideal day out for the whole family. Visitors to the Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum could also visit a wild bird sanctuary that was home to some 2,500 birds from over 100 species from around the world.

BUT: As you may have noticed my field report is written in the past tense. This is because the site has been closed to visitors since October 2018. The vintage collection disbanded and reportedly the collection of more than 1,000 waterfowl and wild birds was removed. It's a shame, because the site was beautifully located and the

The site was located near Halland in South Sussex, about a 1 3/4 to 2 hour drive from London. The sudden and unexpected closure of a major family attraction in Sussex poses a mystery, as the owners have continued to share no information publicly. Not far from the Wildfowl site is still the Mini-Railway, which continues to receive visitors independently of the main site. Unfortunately I have never been there, but a visit during my next vacation in England is already on my wish list.
