Caister Castle Car Collection

Caister Castle Car Collection

Details

Caister Castle Car collection near Caister Great Yarmouth contains probably the largest private collection of motor vehicles in Great Britain from 1893 to the present time, including the first real motor car in the world with full history - 1893 Panhard et Levassor, housed in the same coach house in Florence since new until 1980. See Jim Clark's Grad Prix R14, Peter Rachman's Cadillac and the very first Ford Fiesta.

Featured in the BBC's television series, 'The History of Britain,' the moated castle with 100ft tower was built in 1432 on the site of an earlier fortified manor house where Sir John Falstoff was born. Margaret, wife of Falstaff's heir, John Paston, was the focal point of the famous Paston letters now in the British Museum.
