About the Museum
Opened in 1996, the Pendine Museum of Speed interprets the Pendine area, focusing on the use of the sands at Pendine for land speed attempts and racing. The main exhibit for the summer season is 'Babs', the motor car used by Parry Thomas on his fatal attempt at the record in 1927. Babs was buried in Pendine Sands after Thomas died trying to reclaim the record the following year. She lay there for 42 years until being dug up and restored to her former glory. Motor bikes from Pendine's racing past are also on show. Other record breaking and fast vehicles can be seen at other times. The Museum of Speed triumphs an heroic era of record-breaking cars and motorbike races on Pendine's sweeping sands. Come and explore Pendine's famous history as the 'Sands of Speed'. The museum overlooks the long beach famous for attempts at the world land speed record and motor bike racing.
