Simply French at Beaulieu

If you're a French car lover, then you need to make tracks for the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu this Sunday. Simply French takes place on 12 May and is packed with fabulous cars for Francophiles.

All French vehicle makes and models are welcome, from major manufacturers Renault, Peugeot and Citroen, to the lesser known Matra, Alpine and Gordini. Just drive down, display your vehicle in the grounds, and spend the day admiring other French vehicles, meeting like-minded enthusiasts and enjoying all the delights of the Beaulieu attraction.

This year’s show sponsor, Citroën, will be a welcome addition to the event, displaying a selection of its beautiful models in a bourgeois café scene set up in the parkland, complimented by traditional French music.

As with all Beaulieu’s Simply Rallies, visitors to Beaulieu on the day will be invited to vote for their favourite French vehicle in the People’s Choice Awards. The winning vehicle owner will be presented with a prized Beaulieu Trophy and will be given the opportunity to lead a cavalcade around the grounds of the attraction.

For entrants arriving on 12May in their French vehicles and joining the event on the Beaulieu parkland, entry prices are adult £10 and child £5. Please telephone +44(0)1590 612888 or visit to book advance tickets. For all trade stand enquiries, telephone +44(0)1590 614614. All other visitors should enter Beaulieu via the main Reception at normal Beaulieu attraction admission prices.

Spent the day at Beaulieu, what a refresing venue for a classic car owner, no pumped up prices or silly add ons for other attractions, very good food at sensible prices, good customer service, an excellent venue for a National Rally of any make. We were in my wife's Peugeot 205 Rolnd Garros Cabrio and felt amazed that it was chosen as one of the 8 best cars at the event, especially with the number of other cars Citroen put on a wonderful show with free coffee, crossiants and cup cakes, WELL DONE CITROEN. The SM was a beautiful car, certainly worthy of 1st prize, but equally the Floride and the Alpine were lovely, I thought that the Aronde was also equally excellent. My wife and I thank the organisers and the visitors who voted for her 205 and here's to next year.
