The classic car scene is still as popular as ever, with thousands flocking to vintage car shows each year in the UK. A vintage car is more than just an automobile – it’s a slice of history. Every classic car tells a story of its manufacturer and offers a glimmer into life at that time.
So, for all the car lovers out there, here are the best vintage car shows to visit in the UK.
Silverstone Classic Car Show
As one of the most popular classic car shows in the UK, Silverstone is more than just a car show.

With three nights of incredible live music, delicious festival food, entertainment and a thrilling motorsport line-up, there is something for everyone at this show.
Hagerty Festival of the Unexceptional
The festival of the unexceptional is a car show held in England, featuring cars from the 1960s, 1970s and 1990s that were considered ordinary at the time, but are now quite rare. The festival was held earlier this year and received a turnout of over 1000 exceptionally unexceptional cars. Held in Grimsthorpe Castle in Lincolnshire, this show is rapidly growing in popularity each year.
