Salon Privé Hospitality

Thursday 5th September – Saturday 7th September 2019

Salon Privé is one of the longest running and most established luxury automotive events in the world, located on the stunning South Lawns of Blenheim Palace.

Salon Privé remains the only event to focus solely on the prestige sector with privately owned classic cars from collections from all over the world. This together with luxury brands, hypercars and supercar manufactures such as Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti, Ferrari and Lamborghini, to name but a few. This creates the perfect setting for a quintessentially English garden party and social day out. Blenheim Palace, (regarded as ‘Britain’s Greatest Palace’) steeped in history and famed as the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, provides an exquisite backdrop for this luxury show.

Salon Privé is a three day event where cars from all classes & eras are on display for guests to view at their leisure. The world’s best cars then take to the parade route directly in front of Blenheim Palace to show off their elegance and mechanical beauty.

Each of the three days of Salon Privé provides something different. Thursday is Concour d’Elégance Day which ranks as one of the world’s most prestigious Concours in the world alongside Amelia Island, Pebble Beach and Villa d’Este. On this day the classic cars take the spotlight with all being paraded and judged by a panel of experts.

Friday is Ladies’ Day by Boodles where fashion, style and socialising are the order of the day. Saturday welcomes the official centenary of iconic luxury car manufacturer Bentley with models from all eras on display.

These three days of Salon Privé can be enjoyed with full VIP hospitality which includes Pommery Champagne throughout the day, a delicious buffet luncheon and an English Afternoon Tea.
