Why should I visit the Lawnmower Museum in Southport?

The Lawnmower Museum is the nation's foremost garden machinery collection and multi-award-winning museum of over 250 restored machines!

Come along and enter the fascinating world of this internationally renowned museum and have a unique experience! The museum marks the culmination of a dream by ex-racing champion and lawnmower enthusiast Brian Radam. Brian’s interest in this machinery all stemmed from early involvement in the family business that was started in 1945 which has since then developed into Lawnmowerworld, providing for all aspects of sales, spares and service.

The museum has since become one of the worlds leading authorities on vintage lawnmowers and is now a specialist in antique gardening machinery! The museum doesn’t only collect machinery but also supplies parts, archives the conservation of manuscript materials, and values machines from all over the world!

Along with the exhibitions of old machines, the museum also provides other services such as providing information on certain machines, sourcing spare parts and accessories, service and repairs, and sharpening!

If you are up for learning more about these machines then make your way down to the Lawnmower Museum, why not bring your own and see if it can be improved in any way!

If you’re looking to make a weekend of it, the Lawnmower Museum is close to both Preston and Blackburn. This means regardless of how long you stay, you’re gonna be able to find new and exciting things to do, as well as several choices of accommodation to go with it.
