Around the World in 60 Cars at Hampton Court

Around the World in 60 Cars at Hampton CourtIn just three months' time, the third international Concours of Elegance will take place at Hampton Court Palace on 5-7 September, with 60 of the rarest modern and classic cars from around the world – many of them never seen before in this country – set to grace the Fountain Gardens on the East side of the historic Palace grounds.

Around a third of these exceptional hand-picked Concours cars will be shipped over from the USA specifically for this prestigious event. A further third will arrive from the rest of the world, with the balance made up of some stunning UK-based cars.

These 60 cars will be joined by over 700 other fine automobiles from the UK’s leading car clubs and organised classic car tours, all displayed within the majestic setting of the Hampton Court Palace grounds, with many more classic cars to be found in a dedicated pre-1975 ‘tax exempt’ parking area.
