Meet with fellow VW owners and enthusiasts

All VW owners are invited to drive into Beaulieu and park up within the museum complex for what promises to be a superb day out for both VW owners and enthusiasts.

From modern marvels such as the Golf GTI and Scirocco to classics such as the split-screen Campervan or the original Beetle, all models are welcome at the 3rd Simply VW, which is set to provide a great opportunity to admire some cult vehicles and to connect with fellow enthusiasts.

There will be a cavalcade of the People’s Choice VWs 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 VW trophy.

NEW FOR 2017: Bows and Braces Vintage Village will be joining us with a selection of vintage treasures including clothing, accessories and homewares.

You can see more of last year's event here.


DJ Jivin' Jim Dandy will be playing to keep your feet tappin' all day long! We will also have Company B UK on hand with their nostalgic harmonies filling the arena.

Jitterbug Jive, part of the Bournemouth Lindy Hop Club, will be back for 2017. Enjoy Swing Dance Demonstrations and pull on your dancing shoes for their free Lindy Hop dance tutorials throughout the day.


There is a special rate for those participating in the event with an appropriate vehicle. Standard admission fee applies for all other visitors. Tickets can be purchased in advance online or on arrival. +£1 handling charge per order when purchased by telephone.


Each participating vehicle must have an individual printed e-ticket. If you are being joined by friends in other vehicles, please ensure they have their own tickets with them. If purchasing tickets for multiple vehicles please call 01590 614614 and tickets will be posted to you.


If you wish to park up alongside your friends, you must all arrive together with individual tickets as we are unable to reserve adjacent spaces for later arrivals.

Don't forget...

As well as being an opportunity to see hundreds of VW's, there is also the opportunity to enjoy all that Beaulieu has to offer... Your entry will include admission to all the Beaulieu attractions including; The National Motor Museum, World of Top Gear, Place House, Beaulieu Abbey and more.


Pre-booked clubs are welcome at our Simply events. Please contact the Events team at least two weeks prior to the event to reserve your space. We will need to know the number of vehicles expected to attend – but there will still need to be at least one ticket per vehicle taking part. Clubs are requested to arrive at the same time in order to allow our stewards to park your members faster.


Entry into the Beaulieu Parkland with your VW is from 9.00am – the Brabazon Restaurant will be open for bacon rolls, cakes, teas and coffee. An additional entrance will be open in order for us to get vehicles into the parkland quicker.

Participant Camping

Saturday night camping is available for those displaying a VW as part of the event that then wish to attend the Hot Rod & Custom Drive-In on Sunday 18th June. There will be no camping available for Simply VW only ticket holders.

Camping will be free of charge to those displaying a VW as part of Simply VW that meet the entry criteria for the Hot Rod & Custom Drive-In day, i.e. a pre-1980 classic vehicle. Camping must be booked in advance via the booking form once participant tickets for the Hot Rod & Custom Drive-In day have been purchased.

Camping will also be available at a charge of £10 per unit for all Simply VW participants that then wish to attend the Hot Rod & Custom show but do not have a qualifying (pre-1980) VW.

Please note: the only facilities available overnight will be toilets. Those with qualifying vehicles will be able to bring them across to display areas from 8am on Sunday 18th June.

Great atmosphere, friendly marshals on the gate, good price for me and my 2 kids, a real nice chilled Sunday with the price including the museum, would certainly recommend it and will be back next year, thank you to the organisers.
