At its heart, Bicester Heritage has a vision: to secure a robust and dynamic future for motoring past, present and future, the businesses that serve this market, the people who work in those businesses and the owners and enthusiasts who enjoy their specialist vehicles.
We have already established the first business campus dedicated to historic motoring, based at the UK’s best-preserved WW2 RAF bomber station – the former RAF Bicester.
Over six years we have rejuvenated this unique architectural survivor, restoring the RAF’s Technical Site for modern purpose and creating not just a destination, but a thriving hub of industry geared toward supporting the wider motoring community. We have refurbished and restored the red brick buildings, hangars, tree-lined avenues and airfield to provide an authentic period setting for specialists, vehicle owners, enthusiasts and visitors to meet, share their passions and immerse themselves in a classic age.
The time-warp base is truly unmatched in evocative character, and access to Bicester Motion’s airfield and test tracks complete its dynamic operation as The Home of Historic Motoring. Collectively, Bicester Heritage is all about driving the future of the past.
Bicester Heritage is a component of Bicester Motion, a groundbreaking development which plans to create the UK’s principal destination for anyone who wants to experience motor cars from all eras, including the future.
Bicester Motion will be an incomparable visitor attraction, offering an authentic collection of dynamic and inclusive visitor experiences.
Arranged over four hundred acres and home to four Quarters; Innovation, Heritage, Experience and Wilderness.
Within these guests will be able to immerse themselves in the breadth of British automotive and aviation culture past, present and future, and explore open parkland, beautiful lakes, nature trails and relax in the trackside hotel and lakeside lodges which will surround our unique destination.
We have innovation, community and experience firmly in mind, and are building a healthy, vibrant and dynamic Oxfordshire destination less than an hour from London.
A new event called The Classic Car Drive In Weekend is to take place at Bicester Heritage in September "for motoring and movie fans". Organisers are promising 500+ classic cars in action, on display, on sale and on screen from 18-20 September. See http://www.theclassiccarshowuk.com
