Peninsula Gallery is a contributing sponsor of the British Car Club of Delaware and the Lewes British Motorcar Show. Co-owner Tony Boyd-Heron has been a friend to BCCD's southern chapter for many years, having owned and driven his fair share of LBCs and serving as MC for our show parade in the past.
He and his wife Carol's Peninsula Gallery is one of the largest fine art galleries in Delaware. Starting small in 1996, it has grown over the years to provide 3,000 sq. ft. of display and custom framing space.
Carol and Tony have always considered the gallery to be an extension of their home. When you visit they invite you to browse in a very relaxed atmosphere where you will find upwards of 30 local, regional and international resident artists. Work changes on a regular basis, so there is usually something new to see. You will also find a large area devoted to monthly changing exhibitions, usually from March to December.
Peninsula Gallery has a well-deserved reputation for innovative design, and they use only the very finest archival materials in their work. They are also able to advise on painting and frame restoration and conservation.

Lewes Gourmet (Lewes' source for British teas, finger foods and assorted kitchen, pantry and table items), and the adjoining "Puzzles" shop are contributing sponsors of the British Car Club of Delaware and the Lewes British Motorcar Show. Most days the owners proudly fly a Union Jack from the site of their shop across from Lewes' 1812 Park on Front Street. (A bit ironic that?) Please stop in for a visit and tell them of your appreciation for things British; especially automobiles. Great place to fill a picnic basket before your next motoring adventure, or find a challenging puzzle in case it rains.

Their Viking-themed tasting room off Route 9 between Lewes and Georgetown offers an enjoyable and relaxing way to sample mead's variety and complexity. Order a flight to experience the full range of flavors and take home a bottle for home enjoyment. Since mead has been imbibed since ancient times by Scandinavians as well as Britons, you can feel at home driving your British car to The Brimming Horn Meadery. Skol! or Cheers! (whichever you prefer).

His well-equipped shop is in the Nassau Commons complex off Route 9; a neighbor to Sussex County Customs and the Cape Gazette newspaper. Rudy is frequently working on an exotic assortment of vehicles and it's always a treat to find out what he has in his garage and parking lot on any given day. Due to a reputation for first-class workmanship, Rudy's is frequently busy. Be sure to call as far in advance as possible to schedule your service or repair.

Expertly crafted meals are served in a three-tiered dining room affording a view of the Atlantic from every table all year round, outdoor dining on the boardwalk patio is an option during the warmer months, and a cozy little cocktail lounge with bar and fireplace (called the Plaza Pub) is just right for cooler temperatures. Check the restaurant website to discover when live music is offered.
Beyond breakfast, lunch and dinner, you can enjoy a traditional Victorian afternoon tea. Victoria's also features a Prix Fixe Dinner Menu served from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. (and all night Sundays!) with 3 courses for just $24.95!
