Caravans & Charabancs - Leisure Motoring After the First World War 

Vice President of The Caravan Club Sir Harry Brittain with his Flatavan caravan built in 1926.

The Caravan Club Collection is delighted to be working in partnership with the National Motor Museum Trust on a First World War Commemorative Project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Caravans & Charabancs - Leisure Motoring After the First World War, is exploring the untold legacy of this devastating conflict, charting how accelerated social and technological developments in wartime led to a revolution in leisure motoring in the decades that followed.

The Collection's Curator and a team of volunteers are working to unearth a wealth of untold stories and unseen photographs from The Caravan Club Collection. These are appearing in a range of displays, community events and social media campaigns throughout 2015 and 2016.

Add Something New to the Collection

The Caravan Club aims to develop the Collection to represent its history as fully as possible. Thanks to generous donations from members of public, The Caravan Club Collection is a continually growing resource.

The Collection contains a variety of objects, ephemera, photographs, sound recordings and film which relates to its history and founding fathers. It is also interested in material relating to general caravan history and manufacture such as trade brochures.

The Caravan Club is regretfully unable to collect caravans.
