Inspired by the Hershey Swap Meet in America, renowned car enthusiast Lord Montagu was driven to hold an equivalent event at his motoring museum here in Beaulieu. Now celebrating its 51st year, the International Autojumble is the biggest event in Beaulieu’s motoring calendar with over 2,000 stands offering exhibitors the chance to trade over 38,000 car enthusiasts from all over the world.
This renowned 2 day event takes place in the sleepy village of Beaulieu in the heart of the New Forest National Park and is an exciting day for exploring a treasure trove of automobilia. Enjoy a pint of local ale from the award-winning Ringwood Brewery whilst savouring the distinctive smell of oil and metal as you rummage through old parts and memorabilia.
Whether you are searching for a fan belt for your Fiat or down-pipe for your Daimler, that illusive part will always be found at the Beaulieu Autojumble. It is often said “If you can’t find it at Beaulieu it doesn’t exist!”
Admire vintage cars and motorbikes, trawl though motoring archives, marvel at restoration projects and scale models or pick up a piece of pristine motoring literature.
As well as providing an opportunity for traders to sell motoring paraphernalia, the Autojumble is an annual meet up for petrol heads from across the globe to trade stories and motoring tips, it’s the great social atmosphere and conversation that also draws car enthusiasts.
