Beamish Classic Car Day
Beamish Classic Car Day - Sunday 30th September 2018

This year’s Beamish Classic Car Day takes place on Sunday 30th September 2018 at the Beamish Open Air Museum.

Beamish resides comfortably in 300 acres of beautiful Durham countryside and is now celebrating its £10.9million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund for the Remaking Beamish project.

This year’s show will represent some of the finest motoring history, all neatly showcased within a real-life industrial and historical splendour.

Magical Venue

As You would expect from this magical venue there will be whole range of historical events rolled out, including costumed folk carrying out their daily duties and bringing real life to the enchanting town, but also meeting and greeting those lucky enough to visit this enchanting place.

Moving around Beamish can be challenging for the elderly and disabled, so it’s refreshing to see vintage transportation is readily available for those wishing to take advantage.

Trams, horse drawn carriages and of course the internal classic bus service are all part of this ‘step back in time’ experience that everyone should witness at some point in their busy schedule.

Organised by the North East Club for Pre-War Automobiles, last year’s event witnessed over 500 classic cars dating from around the 1920’s onward.

Historical Cross-Section

The vast historical cross-section of vehicles on display will range from Austin, BMC, Bedford, Bristol, Citroen, Daimler, Ford, Jaguar, Morris, Triumph and even some golden nuggets for the enthusiastic classic visitor to scratch their heads at.
