Volkswagens of all types and ages will be turning up at Beaulieu’s first ever Simply VW, taking place on Sunday 28th June. However, with such interest in the air-cooled classics, we expect many of the older models to take the limelight.

All models will be welcome, from air-cooled classics like the legendary Beetle, stylish Karmann Ghia and iconic Type 2 campers and commercials, to their more modern counterparts.

Owners can drive into the Beaulieu complex and mix with like-minded enthusiasts, compare vehicles and enjoy all of the features of Beaulieu’s grounds.

All vehicles on display will be entered into the People’s Choice Award with the winner voted for by event participants and the attraction’s day visitors. The winner will receive a trophy and lead a cavalcade of the most popular vehicles through the grounds.

Visitors can also make the most of the National Motor Museum, with its collection of over 250 vehicles, ranging from motor racing legends and Land Speed Record breakers, to pioneering early designs and family classics. Don’t miss the museum’s two new displays, Grand Prix Greats and Road, Race & Rally featuring F1, rallying, trials and drag racing exhibits, as well as clothing, trophies, photographs, film and video, telling the story of both track and road racing from its beginnings to the present day.
