London to Brighton Veteran Car RunThe London to Brighton Veteran Car Run sees over 500 pre-1905 vehicles line up in Hyde Park as they prepare to make the 60 mile drive from central London to the Brighton seafront in Sussex, through some of Britain's loveliest scenery. It's a great day out for vintage car enthusiasts from all over the UK and beyond and it's also a bit of a spectacle. The day before the run, on Saturday, more than 100 of these beautiful old cars can be seen on Regent Street as part of The Regent Street Motor Show. You can get up and close to view them and its free of charge. This annual event has taken place every November to commemorate the Emancipation Run of 1896, celebrating the passing into law of the 'Locomotives on the Highway Act'. This raised the speed limit from 4mph to 14mph and meant that cars no longer had to travel with a man walking in front.

 

About Hyde Park

Technically two different parks, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens are in practical terms one huge, merging expanse. The 'split' dates back to 1728 when Queen Caroline, wife of George II, took almost 300 acres from Hyde Park to form Kensington Gardens. The 350 acres that remained has become one of London's best-loved parks. More about Hyde Park
