Mud plugging lovers will be pleased to know that Beaulieu’s Simply Land Rover returns on June 23rd, celebrating 30 long years of the legendary Land Rover Discovery.
From the minimalist Discovery Series I of 1989 to the latest high-tech versions, all five generations of Discovery are invited to park up in a display area set aside in the grounds of the National Motor Museum.
400 Land Rovers
More than 400 Land Rovers of every variety are expected to join the display, with the much-loved Discovery always one of the best-represented models at the show. Over three decades, the Discovery has built an enviable reputation as an all-purpose vehicle par excellence, equally as capable crossing deserts and jungles as providing rugged family transport.
The event offers Land Rover disciples the opportunity to cherish the peoples choice of 4×4’s, and a chance to vote for their favourite Land Rover of the show in the People’s Choice Award, with the winner receiving a Beaulieu trophy.
Other Beaulieu Outings
Other Beaulieu outings include Simply Rummage, which returns following a successful 2018, allowing enthusiasts to get rid of some surplus Land Rover spares and accessories at the show. Look out for seats, panels, lights, wheels, engine parts and more amongst the bargains on offer in this trading corner, which follows in the footsteps of Beaulieu’s well-established Land Rover Rummage at Spring Autojumble.
Another favourite with enthusiasts is Beaulieu’s Forest Drive, returning for 2019 with a newly extended course. This action-packed feature, held in association with Land Rover Experience West Country, is a perfect opportunity to practice off-road driving skills on the challenging forest course. Owners can put their own Land Rovers to the test, while those without their own can drive or ride in a Land Rover Experience vehicle. For more details on this separately charged feature, see here.
Event tickets include entry to all of the Beaulieu attraction, including the museum with its Chitty Chitty Bang Bang 50 years exhibition, World of Top Gear, On Screen Cars, 13th century Beaulieu Abbey, the Montagu ancestral home of Palace House and its grounds and gardens.
