About

A unique experience at the multi award winning British Lawnmower Museum is the Nations foremost Museum of garden machinery in Southport Merseyside, housing over 200 restored exhibits with all their history at the world’s only lawnmower Museum.

Lawnmowers are a very British obsession. We manufactured the best lawnmowers in the world, but sadly we are losing this great piece of British engineering heritage. The lawnmower invented in Gloucester by Edwin Beard Budding in 1830 was deemed a madman for making such a contraption. He had to test his machine at night so no one would see him.

See lawnmowers of the Rich & Famous from Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s to Brian May’s, Paul O’Grady’s plus many more. See the most expensive and the fastest, the first electric to the first robot mower. A tribute to the garden machine industry over the last 200 years.

‘Its all you need to mow’. Open all year. £2. includes audio tour.

Car parking, close to Town Centre and shops

Opening times - Mon to Sat 9am - 5.30pm (not Bank Holidays or Sunday)

    Brian gave us a great tour of this museum. The film from the 1940s was interesting. IF you are near Southport I would definitely recommend going to this attraction. Read full review

    With family in the area we have seen the sign often pointing to this site. It's a little bit out of the way and is housed in a lawnmower shop - who would have guessed? But, if you are looking for... Read full review
