BRUM! at the Cotswold Motoring Museum in Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire

Do you remember watching BRUM! back in the 1990s (if you were a kid back then like I was). The little car BRUM! travelled in the episodes from the Cotswold Motoring Museum in Bourton-in-the-Water in Gloucestershire towards the Big Town (aka Birmingham). You would see Centenary Square and Brindleyplace as they were in the '90s! I went to Bourton back in August 2014.

Do you remember watching BRUM! back in the 1990s (if you were a kid back then like I was). The little car BRUM! travelled in the episodes from the Cotswold Motoring Museum in Bourton-in-the-Water in Gloucestershire towards the Big Town (aka Birmingham). You would see Centenary Square and Brindleyplace as they were in the '90s! I went to Bourton back in August 2014.


Back in August 2014, had a day out in Bourton-on-the-Water in Gloucestershire, and that including a must see visit to the Cotswold Motoring Museum, the home of Brum!

BRUM is seen inside the museum where he starts his journey in each episode heading to the Big Town! (as in Birmingham). Eyes lit up.

He got up to many advetures in the Big Town. Objects may end up inside him!

They had a clip of the title sequence on the TV behind BRUM.

Getting BRUM from many angles. There was other full size cars in here too.

BRUM from the back.

The museum from the outside. This view might be familiar to viewers of BRUM!. The bridge that BRUM! drives over in the title sequence. The view of the museum and bridge with the River Windrush. The bridge is Grade II listed and dates from the 18th century.

Closer up to the Motor Museum from the bridge on the River Windrush.. At the time was various classic cars outside including some Mini's.

"Home of Brum". This sign confirms that I was at the right place. Areas of the museum include "Car Heaven", "Memory Lane" and a "Toy Collection".

In the show, BRUM would driver out of the museum this way, then cross the bridge to the right on the way to the Big Town (Birmingham). More of those classic cars on display back in August 2014.

This balloon outside celebrating BRUM being on TV for 20 years. BRUM was first shown on CBBC in 1991 in it's original run. There was 5 series between 1991 and 2002 (not every year). It's now 28 years since BRUM first started on the BBC. It was developed by Ragdoll Productions. The museum owner Mike Cavanagh the real life museum owner was a character in the show (usually at the beginning and end of the show). He owned the museum until 1999.

Bank Tower Two is very close to fully clad now with the external lifts on the west side removed. Great colours in the sunlight contrasting with Tower One's more bronze and gold exterior.
