Case Study: Brooklands Museum

Birthplace of British motorsport and aviation and home of Concorde, the spirit of Brooklands lives on at Brooklands Museum.

As the world’s first purpose-built motor racing circuit, Brooklands was constructed in Weybridge, Surrey in 1907, and saw its heyday in the roaring, soaring 20s and 30s when dramatic speed record-breaking attempts were undertaken by daredevil drivers.

Brooklands also served as a major centre for aircraft design, construction and flight testing through both World Wars, while in the late 60s and early 70s its facilities played a major role in the development of Concorde, the world’s first supersonic passenger aircraft.

Today, the museum proudly showcases the heritage and history and, recognising its status as an independent charitable trust, Lands’ End is delighted to sponsor Brooklands through the supply of custom-embroidered polo shirts.
