Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey celebrates its 10th anniversary this weekend

The free-to-visit facility at the historic Brooklands race track provides visitors with a fascinating insight into Mercedes-Benz’s 130-year-long history, from the very first automobile in 1886 – the Patent Motorwagen – to the very latest products from Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-AMG and smart.

On top of this, Mercedes-Benz World offers incredible driving experiences on purpose-built tracks both on and off-road. Over the past decade, some 430,000 customers have enjoyed these – the oldest driver being 106 years old, and the youngest just three. In fact, some 30,000 toddlers have got behind the wheel of Mercedes-Benz Bobby cars as part of the Little Learners experience for three-five year olds.

Mercedes-Benz World has also played host to a number of high-profile product launches, including the world premiere of the new Mercedes-AMG GT R this summer. The range-topping sports car was airlifted to Brooklands before landing in front of the world’s media, with Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton taking the GT R out on the track.

To celebrate its 10th birthday, Mercedes-Benz World is offering a £20 discount to customers purchasing an AMG driving experience – meaning an hour of one-to-one tuition at the wheel of a powerful Mercedes-AMG model will now cost £180*. To purchase call 0370 400 4000 and quote ’291006MBW’ (not available online).

Mercedes-Benz World is open from 10 am – 6 pm, seven days a week (with the exception of Christmas Day and Boxing Day).
