All VW owners are invited to drive into Beaulieu on Saturday 15th June and park up within the museum complex for Simply VW. It promises to be a superb day out for both VW owners and enthusiasts.
From modern marvels such as the VW Golf GTI to classics such as the split-screen VW Campervan or the original VW Beetle. All models are welcome, it will be a great opportunity to admire some cult vehicles and to connect with fellow VW fans.
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.
The People’s Choice Award ceremony will take place at 2pm. Anyone wishing to be in with a chance of winning will need to remain on site until the awards ceremony has taken place.

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.
I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed ourselves at the VW event. The venue, facilities and atmosphere were perfect and the organisation was second to none. Congratulations to all involved, and thank you again for a wonderful day.
