We are delighted to announce the return of Simply Smart on Sunday 13th November 2022. All Smart owners are invited to drive into Beaulieu to park up in the museum grounds, for a day out that owners and enthusiasts will enjoy.
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.
All participants have the opportunity to be chosen as the winner of the People’s Choice Award, selected by public vote. Prizes will be awarded to the winner and runners-up.

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.
