THE MG CAR CLUB is an International Club based in the heart of MG country Abingdon in Oxfordshire
Since formation in 1930 by John Thornley O.B.E., the Club has provided high quality support and backing to all its members.
The Club Head Office, Kimber House in Cemetery Road, Abingdon, is sited on the edge of what was once the MG Car Company's headquarters and factory.
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.
We are open from 09:00 to 17:30 Monday to Thursday and 09:00 to 16:00 Friday and at weekends and evenings by appointment. There may be some days where we are all involved in events out of the office - in particular, the week before our MGLive! event is very busy! So, please do phone ahead if you are planning a visit.
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 route to the office is signposted from the direction of the A34 with brown heritage signposts.
