How much does it cost to visit The Abington Collection?

The Collection is open to visitors free of charge! However, any generous contributions and donations are gratefully accepted in aid of Cancer Research UK.

The Abingdon Collection represents over 50 years of passionate collecting and is divided into two very distinct areas of interest. The first part concentrates on World War II and represents one of the largest collections in private ownership, with over 2,500 items on permanent display. This is an educational experience which challenges the senses and pulls a few punches in the displays of items, often now unseen in the larger museums. Children and adults are sensitively taken back to a time that many would want to forget. The talks are geared towards the particular age group of visitors and parental discretion is required, but the images on display reflect a time when Great Britain and indeed Ireland were on the brink of invasion. The second part of the Collection focuses on Classic Vehicles, including MGTD, MGA Fixed Head Coupe, MGB, MGC, Opel Manta, Porsche 911 SC, BMW, Ford Capri and a wide variety of the 1950s and 60’s collectables.

  • No entry charge but all donations offered will go to Cancer Research UK
  • Booking in advance is essential
  • Every effort will be made to facilitate small groups or individuals.
