If you love a classic car, then you’re in for a treat. If you’re a petrol head, you can admire some beautifully restored classic vehicles. If, like me, you are getting on a bit, you can happily walk along the rows of up to 500 vehicles muttering “I used to have one of those” or “they don’t make them like that any more”.
Organised via the Bournemouth and Poole Preservation Club, this event rotates across two/three locations during the year; on the Prom in Bournemouth during the winter months, moving in May to Christchurch Harbour for the summer months.
Classic Cars on the Prom
During the winter months, you can enjoy Classic Cars on the Prom, when hundreds of classic car owners (vehicles must be pre 2001 to qualify) bring their vehicle to Bournemouth seafront to show them off.
Classic Cars On The Prom takes place between 11am and 2pm behind the Bournemouth International Centre.
Classic Cars on the Quay
In Spring, the event moves to Christchurch Quay and becomes Classic Cars on the Quay for a series of six shows. It runs from 11 am to 5 pm and Entry is free for spectators, who can take a stroll along the quayside admiring the variety of vehicles; mainly cars but with a few buses, bikes, lorries, even a fire engine. Cars range from the very old to more recent (20 year old).
Classic Cars on the Farm
Classic Cars on the Farm at the Cat & Fiddle Pick your Own in Hinton is not running this year.
