London to Brighton Veteran Car Run

The London to Brighton Veteran Car Run sets off from Hyde Park Corner. Spectators line the entire 64 miles of the road from London to Brighton to watch the glorious parade of elegant vehicles.

The event commemorates a milestone in motoring history. The 1896 Emancipation Run allowed drivers to increase in speed from 4mph to 14mph, without a man preceding the car on foot holding a red flag.

In order to participate, there is a general rule that cars must be of four or three-wheel design and built before 1 January 1905. Spectators can admire the vehicles during a special International Concours in Regent Street on Saturday, before the run itself on Sunday.
