The London to Brighton Veteran Car Run is a popular event which attracts around four hundred pre-1905 vehicles every year.

2016 promises to be a very special event, because they will be celebrating their 120th anniversary.

It's not a race (100-year-old cars don't race!), but it is a fantastic spectacle as they set off on the 60-mile drive from Hyde Park to the Brighton seafront. You will have to get up early to catch them though — because they set off for the coast as early as 6.45 AM. You need to be there before 8 AM to see the best of them. They should all be in Brighton by 4.30 PM.

Unfortunately they don't allow the public into the actual paddocks where the cars are kept, but you will be able to watch them exit from the Serpentine Road (Hyde Park Corner), go past Wellington Arch, and continue down Constitution Hill. They will then pass Buckingham Palace and head up The Mall, and over Westminster Bridge.
