Mike Barry Motorcycle Museum

Museum In Carlisle, Cumbria

A museum with a truckload of old bikes beautifully restored by past racer Mike Barry.

If you're driving your 4 wheeled car through Cumbria, but love a bit of 2 wheel action, then you're going to enjoy the Mike Barry Motorcycle Museum in Scalebyhill.

Mike was a former racing champion, but during his recuperation following a crash he decided to start restoring motorbikes and his passion hasn't stopped.

His museum now boasts a huge range of bikes including models such as Triumph, Suzuki, Honda, Ducati, Coventry Eagle and even Mike's own BSA racing sidecar. The oldest bike you will find is a 1926 Douglas.

His museum is very laid back, where you can just turn up, have a wander around and leave a donation in a cup at the end.

But the bikes are not the main attraction here. It's Mike himself. He is very welcoming and will chat about his bike collection, his racing days and regale you with many stories around his motorcycling journey.

An absolutely fascinating place to spend a few hours if you have an affinity for motorbikes.

It's on to do list to visit now, but thanks to Neil Hall for sending us all these fabulous photos.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
