Location / Nearby The Abingdon Collection

Description

'THE ABINGDON COLLECTION' is open by appointment only and offers a unique visitor experience in the beautiful rolling hills of Co. Tyrone. Divided into two distinct sections the first area covers classic cars, motorcycles, diecast models and enamel signs and every 'BIG BOY'S TOY' imaginable. Take a step back in time to the 1950's and remember when petrol was sold in gallons and you could still afford to buy it. The second part of the collection takes you back to the dark day's of World War Two and represents one of the largest private collections of militaria in the UK. Admission is free but contributions to Cancer Research are gratefully accepted. If you want a totally different day out with a history lesson included contact us now. Classic car and motorcycle clubs are very welcome and catering can be organised for visiting large groups. Admission is by appointment only but every effort will be made to facilitate any visiting individual or group. Fifty years of collecting in 2018.

A must-see experience

A superb collection of classic vehicles, vintage memorabilia and historical artefacts. The effort Philip has gone to in collecting, restoring and displaying this fascinating collection is truly impressive. His passion for his subject is wonderful and he’s an engaging and highly knowledgeable guide. Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed the tour and have been recommending it to friends and family since.

Fascinating collection

This has been on my ’To Do’ list for the past couple of years. Such a fantastic collection, each room is a treasure trove full of history and memories. Philip is so passionate and knowledgeable and encouraged us to get into the vehicles to get the full experience. Such attention to detail throughout the whole collection. Definitely recommend a visit, superb! Thank you Philip.

Amazing tour

We visited the Abingdon Collection last week and suffice to say that we found the journey from Galway well worth while. The curator, Philip, gave us a wonderful tour and he is extremely knowledgeable. Every room we went into held a real treasure trove of items collected by Philip over the last 53 years. However, the final room housing the Military Museum left us absolutely stunned. It is absolutely fantastic and we can not recommend it strongly enough.. Thank you, Philip, we will be back.
