About The Cars of the Stars

In 1982, while filming the television series "The Spoils of War" Granada Television approached Keswick painter and sculptor, Peter D Nelson and asked if they could borrow his MG TC for use in their production. It was as a result of this that several years later Mr Nelson conceived the idea of building a motor museum, featuring celebrity television and film vehicles. After purchasing the Royal Oak Garage in the centre of Keswick, which required total refurbishment, he began a two year search for cars with film and television connections and the dream finally became reality when this unique museum opened to the public on 1st May 1989. *Image is not necessarily one of the museum.
