Your Surrey Wedding - February/March 2023 (Issue 99)

BROOKLANDS MUSEUM, KT13 0QN 01932 858 005 First opening its doors in 1907, Brooklands Museum has been through two World Wars, the Jet Age and beyond. It’s a place of great endeavour, achievements and has spawned many great pioneers, drivers, aviators and engineers. There are several impressive exhibits for couples and their guests to explore and get an insight into the venue’s wonderful history, with plenty of photograph opportunities, such as under the wings of the Concorde, the oldest remaining British motor racing track or next to remarkable motor racing vehicles. There is also the opportunity to book a driving experience on part of the old track in an exhilarating vintage car. Celebrate in style All of the function spaces at Brooklands Museum are licensed for ceremonies, but the standout space is the Concorde, which is capable of holding 60 friends and family. Alternatively, the Art Deco Rooms which are flooded with natural light and offer views of either the Motoring Village, Original Finishing Straight or the Aircraft Park, are available. The Vickers Suite can be used with space for 100 guests throughout the day, and The Bluebird Room can hold 80 loved ones for the ceremony and 100 for the evening celebration. The largest space, The Napier Room, can accommodate 180 people for the service and 250 for the reception. We love... The museum holds one wedding a day, ensuring couples have the team’s undivided attention. They’ll also receive a complimentary menu tasting and concessionary rates available at some of the local hotels.
