The Abingdon Collection

A Walk In The Past

Welcome to The Abingdon Collection

The Abingdon Collection represents 50 years of passionate collecting and provides an opportunity for visitors to take a "walk in the past". If you lived through the 50's, 60's and 70's, or just like big boy toys, then there is definitely something for you. The Collection is open by appointment only, but every effort will be made to facilitate small groups or individuals. The Collection is open to visitors free of charge, but contributions are gratefully accepted in aid of Cancer Research UK.
