British Motor Museums

25th February 2015

For many people Earl's Court in London brings back memories of Motor Shows when all the manufacturers from far and wide displayed their latest exciting range of motor cars.

Many of these are now on display in motor museums. Some years ago the Motor Show moved to the NEC in Birmingham. Now, Earl's Court is to be demolished, the Art Deco building,

built in 1937 to replace the original 1887 hall will vanish. English Heritage have decided it isn't that important so the bulldozers will move in soon. In its place and on

surrounding land will spring up some 7,500 new homes, schools and shops.
