From the Brewery Centre web site
The museum also celebrates the social history of the development of brewing – the real life experiences and stories of the people who helped to build Burton’s world-renowned brewing reputation.
Tours start with a holographic-style presentation of the history of brewing, then our experienced guides take visitors through each step of the brewing process and explain the fascinating roles that the steam engines and vintage vehicles on show played in the development of the industry.
The William Worthington microbrewery brings the tour up to the present day – with the chance to sample some great local ales brewed on site!

Our Coffee Stop is in the cafe at The Great British Car Journey
The GBCJ tells the story of a British industry which in its heyday was a worldwide force and its products could be found in all corner of the globe. Its heroes are the popular cars from a bygone era when for half a century, British cars did literally “rule the road”. Many of these cars are now incredibly rare.
Many of the cars are visible over the barrier on route to the cafe, unfortunately time will not allow a full visit into the venue today, admission normally costs £14.00, the group admission price is slightly less.
Members (and prospective members) are welcome to join or leave an any point, please let the leader know if you intend to do this so we are not waiting for you, and if you are leaving mid route, ensure that the cars behind know you are leaving the convoy, or you may find you have extra guests at your house for tea !!!!
Please study the clubs Good Driving Guide before coming on a run
