Beaulieu Simply Land Rover show celebrates marque at 70
Simply Land Rover will take place on Sunday June 24 at Beaulieu, celebrating 70 years of the best 4x4 with a forest drive and autojumble
The National Motor Museum in Beaulieu will celebrate 70 years of Britain’s iconic 4x4 with Simply Land Rover on Sunday June 24, hosting a Land Rover-themed autojumble and epic off-road Forest Drive alongside hundreds of Land Rover's finest offers on show.
For the first time, the dedicated Land Rover rally will feature Simply Rummage, a mecca for Landy enthusiasts seeking spare parts and hard-to-find memorabilia for sale or to swap.
A further show highlight will be the return of the popular Beaulieu Forest Drive, held in association with Land Rover Experience West Country, allowing keen drivers to practice their off-roading skills.
