  1. Car enthusiasts can enjoy a great visit to the Donington Grand Priz Collection in the beautiful county of Derbyshire.  It's quite an amazing place.  My other half is a car enthusiast, (I'm more of an environmentalist and into the planet), but the range of cars was quite something.  

    You can see see some of the most famous racing cars in history, and get close to the largest collection of Vanwall, McLaren, and Williams racing vehicles on the planet (outside their factories) and see the cars that took famous drivers such as Jackie Stewart, Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost into the record books.

    As a history lover, I enjoyed seeing the Wheatcroft Military Collection, which includes vehicles from World War II. Having seen some of them in films, it was amazing to get close up to them.  I hadn't realised they were so large.  

    There was a range of tanks, rare motorcycles and armoured vehicles.  It's an incredible collection of memorabilia and artefacts, and well worth a look. 

    The day we visited, there was hardly anyone there, but actually that made it easy to enjoy the cars.  It was all quite fascinating and well worth a visit.
