Sir Henry Royce Memorial Foundation
The Sir Henry Royce Memorial Foundation maintains one of the World’s largest collections of original Rolls Royce and Bentley motor car records and memorabilia thus being a centre of excellence for research supported by a first class reference library. The Foundation’s function is to preserve and secure all work that relates to the engineering brilliance and legacy of Sir Henry Royce through his motor cars, aero engines and associated projects.
The Foundation encourages and promotes interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics through lectures and visits to our museum. Located at the Hunt House, the Foundation displays a fascinating range of unique Rolls Royce artefacts from early electrical fittings and 20hp cars to a Merlin engine via bespoke coachbuilding and a collection of “Spirits of Ecstasy”.
Like-minded motoring organisations and clubs with an interest in engineering are welcomed at the Hunt House where they can enjoy a guided tour of the museum and Archive or attend our lectures by eminent engineers or those personally involved with the Marque and its evolution. Visits to the museum and conference facilities are by appointment and can be arranged by contacting the office.
