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.
