Welcome To The Sammy Miller Museum

Sammy Miller is a motorcycling legend, 11 times British Champion, winner of over 1400 events and still winning competitions more than 50 years after his first victory.  The Museum houses one of the finest collections of fully restored motorcycles in the world, including factory racers and exotic prototypes, with the collection constantly evolving as new bikes are acquired.   This is a living museum with almost every motorcycle in the museum in full running order.  Sammy regularly demonstrates the bikes at race circuits in the UK and Europe and at Museum, event days.

In November 2014 Sammy was presented with the FIM (Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme) Legend Award in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain and in October 2016 Sammy was for the second time awarded Motor Cycle News’s David Taylor Lifetime Achievement Award. Perhaps all the more significant was that this award was accorded to Sammy by the younger generation of journalists at MCN who are not always aware of Sammy’s momentous achievements over the years!

In 2014 Sammy wanted an area which would enhance the Museum allowing him to display even more motorcycles and motorcycling memorabilia.  Completed in January 2015 and officially opened in March 2015 by John Surtees OBE and Murray Walker OBE, the two story glass fronted extension has certainly given the Museum Complex the entrance it deserves!
