Event Information

The Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run supported by Hiscox is a truly magnificent spectacle and offers members of the public a rare opportunity to view 400 pre-1905 vehicles travel on mass along public roads. 

Included on this page is information to help you understand the origins of the Run, what is happening and where and how best to enjoy it. Please see the below list of what is included 

  • historical timeline showcasing the Veteran Car Run from the very beginning
  • event overviews which detail the events taking place during the London Motor Week some of which are open to the general public
  • directions and travel information to the three main checkpoints in London, Crawley and Brighton

This is a unique opportunity to share and experience the Run with the participants’ and fellow enthusiasts.
