Great British Car Journey - Spring Mini Day

Join fellow Mini enthusiasts at this event.


26th May 2024 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

At Great British Car Journey, we absolutely LOVE Minis and we recognise Sir Alec Issigonis as a genius. May 26th is the day we acknowledge this and we would like to assemble as many Minis as possible and we reckon that because they are so tiny we have room for at least 400 !!

So if you love Minis and certainly if you own one, we would love to see you at Great British Car Journey on May 26th. Anyone arriving in a Mini or any Mini derived car such as Elfs and Hornets as we celebrate the genius of Sir Alec and an era when his cars ruled the road and the race and rally circuit.

We have lots of Minis to see within the collection – Austin 7, Special Editions, Delivery Mileage, Cooper, Clubman etc and we would really love to see your Minis too so we can fill the car park full of Alec Issigonis amazing creations.

Afterwards you can enjoy our interactive car museum with over 150+ classic cars on display from 1902 to the present day. The Filling Station Café will be open for refreshments, breakfast, lunch or even a sweet treat.
