Discover the unique delights of Compton Verney, where there’s something for everyone to enjoy. 120 acres of stunning parkland and lake surround an award-winning art gallery, with a family friendly café and gift shop.

Black Country Living Museum
The award-winning corner of the West Midlands is now one of the finest and largest open-air museums in the United Kingdom. After very humble beginnings, a bright idea and 40 years of inspiration, this is twenty six acres worth exploring. Amazing as it may seem, BCLM have created a ‘place’ – a real and lively place, where once there was nothing and nobody. With a village and charismatic residents to chat with. Trams to ride. Games to play. Things being made. Stories to hear. People – their triumphs to admire and troubles to be thankful that are not ours. Time to be well spent.
If you are old enough, you may just be looking for nostalgia and that is fine. But equally, we believe that history shouldn’t be seen as a safe haven in a fast changing and challenging world, but a catalyst for thinking and reflection about our own lives.
Jaguar Land Rover Classic
The 14,000m2 Jaguar Land Rover Classic facility at Oxford Road Coventry is a state-of-the-art facility consolidating all Classic operations under one roof, comprising 54 individual workshop bays and strip-down areas, a dedicated engine shop and space for up to 500 vehicles.
World Forum visitors will have the opportunity to glimpse behind the scenes, learning more about the history and prestige of these two iconic British brands and the chance to see some of the 500 cars in the Jaguar Land Rover Classic Vehicle collection.
For more than a century the Morgan Motor Company have been making classic British sports cars in the spa town of Malvern in Worcestershire. Morgan cars are famous the world over for their unique blend of charisma, quality materials, craftsmanship and performance.
World Forum delegates will take a tour of the factory to see Morgan cars being built from start to finish, discovering the mix of cutting edge technology and traditional skills used to turn out the most quintessentially British of automobiles.
Silverstone Heritage Limited was awarded £9.1 million in 2017 by the Heritage Lottery Fund which to enable it to build the Silverstone Heritage Experience at the home of British Motor Racing.
The project will bring the heritage of Silverstone and British motor racing to life through the creation of a dynamic, interactive and educational visitor experience that will include a permanent exhibition taking visitors on an exciting two hour journey through motor racing past, present and future. The latest technology will be used to tell the amazing stories of the people that have been part of the site’s history, from medieval monks and WWII air crew to the racing drivers, riders, engineers and marshals of today.
The complex will also include a Collections and Research Centre, offering museum and archive accredited storage for the unique British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) archive and other motor sport collections as well as a specialist library and learning space for school groups.
