Thinking of taking a trip to the Porsche Museum with my grandson on 1st November, I've also emailed them about possibility of a factory tour.

Also looking into staying at the V8 Hotel, are there any other places worth a look while we are there or on the way back to the Chunnel ?

You'll have a great trip Simon. If you come to the breakfast meeting at Badgers Mount on Sunday we can chat about it - I've been twice.

It won't be much of a diversion to go or come back via Dusseldorf so I can thoroughly recommend The Classic Remise.

Mercedes museum is worth doing and it’s a lot larger than the Porsche one. Easily possible to do porsche museum, factory tour and the Mercedes museum in a day. You can wonder around a lot of motorworld at the v8hotel site out of hours as well. Worth checking the underground car park at v8hotel as the dealerships use it as overflow Thumb

Seems it's a Bank Holiday when we were planning to go so no factory tours..

If you show your tickets from the porsche museum at the Mercedes museum you get 25% off the entry and vice versa. We visited this year and it was very good, both very different. We came back via the Nurburgring.

If you're a PCGB member show you can show your card at reception and get free entry to the Porsche museum.
