All owners of Smart cars are invited to drive into Beaulieu on Sunday 11th November and park up within the museum complex for what promises to be a superb day out for both Smart car owners and enthusiasts.
The event is set to provide a great opportunity to admire a wide range of these fun and often colourfully wrapped vehicles, from the `ForTwo` to the `Roadster` and even the limited edition Crossblade.
There will be a cavalcade of the People’s Choice Smart cars from the show. All participants have the opportunity to be chosen as the winner of the People’s Choice Award, selected by public vote. The winner will receive the Beaulieu Simply Smart trophy.
You can see photos from the 2017 event here.

DRIVING IN THE NEW FOREST
We are very lucky to be located in the heart of the New Forest however this does offer up some unique hazards on the roads.
Please drive carefully and responsibly when attending our events and be aware of free-roaming animals and cyclists on the roads. Due to the close proximity of our neighbours, please be respectful when entering and leaving the event.
