Blenheim Palace is hosting a series of motor vehicle events to entertain groups throughout the summer

Summer of Speed at Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace will host some very special classic cars this summer.

The events will take place in the grounds of the palace in Oxfordshire, where groups of 15 or more can make use of discounted ticket prices.

What can groups look forward too?

Pre ’50 American Auto Club ’Rally of the Giants’ is the next scheduled event, taking place on Sunday 14th July, a day dedicated to America’s auto mobiles.

More than 400 of the country’s finest motorcars, trucks, military vehicles and bikes will go on display.

From vintage Fords to classic Chevrolets, the event welcomes visitors to either buy, sell or just experience the collection.

Then from Thursday, 5th September to Saturday, 7th September, visitors can enjoy the Salon Privé which will see thousands of iconic collectors descend upon the Palace. The luxurious three-day garden party gives the opportunity to see the finest collection of supercars, hypercars and classic cars. 

Formerly known as the Blenheim Palace Classic & Supercar, Salon Privé Classic & Supercar will close the season on Sunday 8th September.

The new event will see Salon Privé expand to incorporate, not just the South Lawn, but also the North Lawn with the Great Court and surrounding Parkland.

Groups can feast their eyes on thousands of supercars throughout the season.

80 privately-owned supercars will arrive on the morning of the event, while the surrounding parkland will house 1,001 Bentleys.

There will be 500 privately-owned super & classic cars from the Supercars Club to see too.

Guests can also admire the Salon Privé Experience on the South Lawn, featuring the latest Super and Hypercars alongside the rarest classics.

Luxury picnic hampers will be available to order in advance. 

The birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill

Built as a gift to John Churchill from Queen Anne in 1704, Blenheim Palace also welcomes groups onto guided tours.

You can wander into the palace’s state rooms and gardens as part of your visit.

The Churchill Experience is also part of the admission price to the palace, consisting of photographs, letters, artefacts and a number of other elements including his birth room.
