London to Brighton Classic Car Run

The London to Brighton Veteran Car Run has been taking place every November since 1927 and commemorates the Emancipation Run of 14 November 1896 which celebrated the passing into law of the Locomotives on the Highway Act, which raised the speed limit for ‘light locomotives’ from 4 mph to 14 mph and abolished the requirement for these vehicles to be preceded by a man on foot.

The current London to Brighton Classic Car Run commenced in 1988 and gives owners of vintage and classic cars the chance to take part in their own run on a usually warmer day in summer complete with a self guided scenic tour to Brighton which changes each year and attracts many regular participants.

In 2000, an additional run was launched to cater for modern sports cars, kit and replica vehicles, meaning that our London to Brighton runs are available to all motoring enthusiasts!

2021 saw the addition of the London to Brighton Modern Classics Car Run, open to vehicles from 1st January 1980 to 31st December 2000.
