Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust
Established in 1983, we are a registered charitable Trust. With a team of employees, trustees and volunteers, we work together to bring the legend to life and share the life story of Jaguar and its predecessor companies.
Our purpose is to establish, maintain and promote for the benefit of the nation, the permanent preservation of historic archives, artefacts and motor vehicles manufactured and sold by Jaguar Cars Ltd. (now renamed Jaguar Land Rover Ltd.) and its predecessor companies under the marque names of Swallow, SS, Jaguar, Daimler and Lanchester, where such vehicles are of actual potential historic, scientific importance and educational value.
Our charity registration number is: 286863.
We have two main permanent display locations in Gaydon and Coventry, but please note, as our vehicles are a living collection, the displays quite frequently change and whenever possible the gaps are filled with similar vehicles.
We are based in the Collections Centre at the British Motor Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire. This is where most of our vehicle, artwork and artefact collections are displayed.
Our vehicles are maintained by our technicians at the workshop in Gaydon. They are assisted by a band of willing volunteers who also attend and support various events throughout the year.
Check out some of our vehicles down below:
You will find a selection of our vehicles in the Jaguar Area at the Coventry Transport Museum and a few others around the museum.
In addition to the stunning collection of vehicles covering ten decades of Jaguar and the role of the company in Coventry history, the gallery also references the many technological and design innovations behind these great vehicles.
Contemporary storyboards, archive film clips and spectacular imagery complement the sequential journey through the gallery, with historic artefacts to further illustrate Jaguar’s rich heritage.
