Bring your Dad along to see classic cars, bikes, tractors and more displayed in a new area next to the Castle with outstanding views of the Castle and Park beyond.

Listen to the purring of excellently restored engines and admire the beautifully waxed bodywork of the classic cars, vintage vehicles and timeless transport at this long established show.

Classics in the Park is a perfect day of motoring nostalgia. Displayed within our breath taking parkland will be commercial vehicles, Land Rovers, trucks, bikes, 4 x 4’s and classic cars including MGs, Triumph Stags and Austin Seven’s.

There’s also the motor awards to look forward to, an auto jumble for anyone looking for a bargain or a rare discontinued part, and an arena and commentaries throughout the day.  Add to that the chance to speak to exhibitors about their passion, this fun packed day out will get even the most keyed up of classic car enthusiasts into gear!
