For thousands of MG owners, Kimber House in Abingdon represents a second home. This is where Cecil Kimber (Managing Director from 1935-1945) and John Thornley (General Manager and subsequently Managing Director) successfully ran one of the world's most well-known and well-respected car manufacturing companies.
Kimber House has a wonderful exhibition of various MG and MGCC memorabilia, a library of MG and BMC Comps Dept books, an archive of more than 15,000 photos plus production records for most MGs produced up to 1950. All are welcome to visit. Members of the MGCC and affiliated clubs can additionally use the Douglas Mickel room for meetings and lunches subject to availability. Given reasonable notice, meetings can often be arranged with significant MG figures such as Don Hayter (the designer of the MGB ) and Peter Browning (former manager of the BMC Competitions Dept at Abingdon). The centre of Abingdon is 10 minutes walk away. The former home of Cecil Kimber in Abingdon - The Boundary House is now a pub serving food and is just 5 minutes drive from our offices.
Only 2 continents in the world: MG Car Club and the other.
It is where the MG Car Club, formed 1930, is based and the Club's headquarters sits on the edge of what was once the MG Car Company's headquarters and factory.
