Safe Spaces


The British Motor Museum is committed to providing its staff and clients with a safe place to work and meet. Take a look below at our 5 point safe spaces commitment to customers and our safe spaces video at the bottom of this page.

We realise that for you to have the confidence to book a meeting, exhibition or event you need to know what we as a venue are putting in place to support you, so that you and your delegates feel safe in our spaces and confident in our staff and services.

We are adopting new approaches in order to adhere to the Government guidelines, so whilst things may look a little different at the venue for a while, we are still committed to providing the same high level of service and our team are here to help you navigate the safest way to host your event.

delegate-rates-icon-grey-2   Flexible bookings

We know that it is hard to plan when things are changing on a day-by-day basis. So we are revising our event contracts and terms and conditions to allow customers flexibility. For any new meetings or events confirmed with us moving forwards, we promise that should they subsequently be unable to go ahead due to COVID-19 we will transfer your booking to a mutually agreeable future date, penalty-free and at the agreed previous rates.
