Simply Land Rover
On Sunday 11th August, join the droves of Land Rovers heading for Beaulieu to take part in Simply Land Rover. All Land Rovers, of any age or model, are welcome. Owners can display their vehicles in the parkland, take part in the event activities, and enjoy all the delights of the Beaulieu attraction, including the National Motor Museum’s exciting BOND IN MOTION exhibition, which showcases 50 original vehicles from the James Bond films as well as behind-the-scenes footage from some of the most thrilling vehicle stunt sequences.
Beaulieu has partnered with the Land Rover Experience, West Country, to give visitors to Simply Land Rover the opportunity to try Beaulieu’s very own off-road Forest Drive. Event participants can book a space at a cost of £25 per vehicle to take their own Land Rover on the 45 minute course, and can also enjoy a second drive after 3pm for a discounted rate of £15 per vehicle, when booked with the first drive.
Visitors who do not have a Land Rover, but would like to try the course, can book a slot in a Land Rover Experience vehicle. Land Rover Experience’s trained instructors can take you on the course for £40 to drive, or £10 for a passenger ride. Please note that to drive you must be aged over 25 and have both parts of your full UK driving license with you on the day.
The Forest Drive prices do not include the entrance fee to the event or Beaulieu attraction. The first group will leave at 10am with the final rotation leaving at 4.30pm. Terms and conditions apply. There may be some slots available on the day, but to avoid disappointment it is advisable to book in advance. Booking for the Forest Drive will be available soon at www.beaulieushop.co.uk
Throughout the day visitors will be given the opportunity to vote for their favourite vehicle on display in the People’s Choice Awards. In the afternoon a cavalcade of the most popular vehicles will parade around the Beaulieu attraction, and the winning vehicle will receive a Beaulieu Trophy.
For entrants arriving on the day in their Land Rover and participating in the event, individual ticket prices are £10 per adult and £5 per child. Book advance tickets online at www.beaulieushop.co.uk or by telephone on 01590 612888, which you can also call for information on group/club entry. For all enquiries regarding trade stands, telephone 01590 614614.
Entry into the Beaulieu parkland with your Land Rover is from 9.30am with refreshments available in the Brabazon Restaurant.
All other visitors who wish to see the event, but not participate in a Land Rover should enter Beaulieu via the Main Reception from 10am at normal attraction admission prices.
Admission to the event includes entry to the whole Beaulieu attraction; the National Motor Museum, BOND IN MOTION, World of Top Gear, Beaulieu Abbey, and Palace House and gardens.
Simply Land Rover is part of a growing calendar of Simply rallies which has rapidly expanded to include a wide variety of themes covering many makes and models. All Simply rallies are run and organised by Beaulieu and take place in the grounds of the National Motor Museum. For more information please visit www.beaulieuevents.co.uk
