Robin Reliant - Only Fools and Horses Ford Anglia - Harry Potter KITT - Knightrider Rolls Royce (FAB1) - Thunderbirds Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Dolorian - Back to the Future The A-Team Van These are not all of the cars present when we visited i'm sure i've not missed many. Having paid £5 each for two adults to gain entry (i believe children were £3) and then seeing that there were far less cars here than we initially thought from the advertising we'd seen. It literally took us around 30min to look round the actual museum properly. Coupled with this no photography is allowed which left us feeling the £10 could maybe have been better sp... more

Cars of the Stars is as its name suggests a museum based around famous cars from both television series and movies. It is in Keswick in the Lake District and is easy to get to, local parking is good but get into the town early especially at peak periods to find parking.

Ok you're in the Lake District and its raining. You know what I mean this is not normal rain but Cumbrian rain. You have screaming kids with you and they want to do something. Keswick is the place to head and then go to the CARS OF THE STARS MUSEUM. It's based in the middle of Keswick with loads of car parks near by. The car parks can get very busy at peak times so you may have to drive around for a while or park in one of the many side streets. The museum does not look like much from the outside and as you enter the main building you still think there is not much in here. But on entering the doors to the to the museum part of the building you realise that ... Read the complete review

Its time to think about cars, famous cars that is, if you think about it you will soon think of many films and tv series that feature cars.. Everyone must remember Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, what about the Bat Mobile in the classic 60's Batman series or KIT the indestructible car in Knight Rider.. The cars were the stars, they had a life of their own, they made stole the show, from Herby to Del Boys Robin Reliant we loved them all. I have always wanted to see these cars in real life, but travelling to far flung movie studios was not exactly something my budget could cope with. However thanks to the "Cars of the Stars" ...

This is a fantastic museum to complement your trip to the Lake District. Right in the middle of town the museum is easy to get to and has disabled access. The museum features cars from movies and TV including the star attraction Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The cars are all beautifully presented with adequate information displayed next to them. The museum is easy to walk around and will certainly keep the kids interested with cars from The Pink Panther, Flintstones, Thunderbirds and Back to the Future. A large collection of James Bond cars are exhibited along with many original film costumes and props. Cars of the Stars is definitely a ... Read the complete review
