Visitor information

A warm welcome awaits you in Stony Stratford for our event which starts at 09.30am.  Many of the restaurants, coffee shops and watering holes will be open to refresh you during your walk round the town as you view all the vehicles on display.

Visitors are requested to use the public car parks as the centre of the town will be taken up by the vehicles on display. As shown on the downloadable PDF. Please refer to the map below and the link for details (click image for enlargement).

Google Maps provides greater detail of the area and a helpful route finder. Alternatively, you can set your sat-nav destination to the Market Square, Stony Stratford, MK11 1BE (note: this is the Show Area, car parking is situated nearby so please use this location only as a guide).

A warm welcome awaits you in all of Stony Stratford’s restaurants, coffee shops and watering holes (it may be prudent to book in some cases).

Those visitors interested in the local history may wish to visit the Stony Stratford Community website which has all local services and visitor information on it which includes taking a stroll on the official Stony Stratford town walk.

Our 2024 welcome leaflet is available Now.


A few words of advice

As with all public events, the public will be there! So it makes good sense to keep an eye on your car and possessions, as event organisers cannot be held liable or responsible for any claim.

If you haven’t already, why not sign up for our updates – we won’t bombard you with irrelevant information.

Finally, The event can get quite busy at times, especially early on – please be patient (all the marshals are unpaid volunteers). On the off chance you have to park outside our allotted areas, marshals will have copies of our town map & car park leaflet to hand out to assist you in finding alternative parking, just be mindful of drive and pedestrian access points. and please remember none of us are ‘above the law’.

On The Day
