On Sunday 29 June, Beaulieu will be holding its second ever Simply Alfa Romeo rally, welcoming vehicles from one of the most stylish motoring marques into the grounds of the National Motor Museum to create a stunning display for visitors to admire.
If you own an Alfa, this event gives you the opportunity to drive your vehicle through the beautiful New Forest to Beaulieu and join the display of Alfa Romeos in the picturesque Beaulieu parkland. The rally is open to all ages and models of Alfa, from the classic HP and 6C models of the early 1900s to the modern 4C, Giulietta and MiTo models cruising on the roads today. It is a fantastic opportunity to meet other like-minded enthusiasts and enjoy all the features of the Beaulieu attraction.
See the National Motor Museum’s stunning collection of over 250 vehicles, and don’t miss the two fascinating new displays which have recently opened. For Britain & For The Hell Of It features four iconic Land Speed Record breakers and a moving multimedia presentation on British Land Speed Record achievements, alongside a temporary exhibition of vehicles with a more alternative Land Speed Record heritage. The Motorcycle Story tells the history of two-wheeled transport, with displays of bikes and memorabilia covering a range of racing disciplines, road safety and British youth culture of the 1950s and 60s.
Enter the refreshed and updated World of Top Gear to see genuine vehicles created by presenters Jeremy, Richard and James in their challenges on the BBC television show and pay a visit to On Screen Cars, showcasing star cars from the world of TV and film.
Stroll through the beautifully-kept gardens to Palace House, home of the Montagu family since 1538, visit 13th century Beaulieu Abbey and explore the grounds on the high-level Monorail or by hopping onboard the open-topped veteran London bus.
As with all Simply Rallies, visitors to Beaulieu on the day of the event will be invited to vote for their favourite vehicle in the People’s Choice Awards. The owner of the winning car will receive a Beaulieu Trophy in an afternoon presentation ceremony and will be given the opportunity to lead a cavalcade of Alfa Romeos through the attraction.
