Michelham Priory
Car and Fire engine event

The stunning grounds of Michelham Priory provide a wonderful setting for well over 100 vehicles each day. Vehicles on display show the evolution of motoring over the past 100 years from the early "horseless carriages" to more recent classics. Classic motorbikes, tractors and fire engines have also registered for the event, so there really is something for everyone.
Make the most of your visit by visiting the watermill, working forge and art exhibition in the main house. The café is open all day serving freshly made lunches, light snacks and drinks. Our seasonal "Plot to Plate" menu will also be available using fresh, home-grown ingredients picked each morning from our own kitchen garden. No visit is complete without a trip to the Dovecote Shop, where there will be a range of exclusive special offers for this weekend only.
