Cotswold Motoring Museum - Bourton-on-the-Water - Mill Gallery - BRUM

At the Cotswold Motoring Museum in Bourton-on-the-Water. It is on Sherborne Street. Famous as the Home of Brum.



Mill Gallery


The gallery is bulging with great vehicles, quaint caravans, motoring curiosities, and enamel signs. There are showcases packed with memorabilia, so look high and low, every corner is filled. It is here that you will find Brum. He lives in the Museum and this is where he was filmed. He loves having his photo taken, so don’t forget your camera.





Home of Brum


You can visit Brum at his home and see where he was filmed. The little super hero car, whose adventures start and end at the Museum, can be found at the Museum every day.


Brum is regularly shown on the BBC, so keep a look out for him!


At the Museum you can have your photo taken with Brum, take a ride on our special Brum, make your own individual Brum brass-rubbing and also take home a special Brum gift to remember your visit.





Brum is a British children's TV programme about the adventures of a radio controlled car of the same name. It was produced by Ragdoll Productions for HIT Entertainment and first broadcast in 1991. It was initially directed, written and produced by Anne Wood, latterly directed and written by Vic Finch, Paul Leather, Emma Lindley, Morgan Hall, Brian Simmons, Nigel P Harris and others. It was initially narrated by Toyah Willcox and later by Tom Wright. The show was first aired on Children's BBC on BBC One (later on CBeebies).



Each episode of Brum begins and ends in the same way - with Brum, sitting amongst the cars in a motor museum. When the museum owner's back is turned, he comes to life and heads out to go exploring in the "Big Town", but always returns to the museum at the end of each episode. The opening sequence and closing sequence was filmed at the Cotswold Motoring Museum in Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire, England. The model car used in filming is kept on display there when not in use.


Originally the programme was set in the city of Birmingham in England, hence the name: in addition to its onomatopoeic nature of a car engine revving, Brum is a common colloquial name for Birmingham and its inhabitants are known as Brummies. Later series make no mention of Birmingham, calling it the "Big Town", but Brum still continued to be filmed there and many Birmingham streets and landmarks can be seen in each episode, including Aston University.



Original run of five series from 1991 - 2002 on CBBC.
