North England offers a wide range of classic car shows. If you're interested in anything from steam engines to mid-century cars, domestic or international makes, you can find a car show with such vehicles on display. Most shows run for one day and are typically presented by local car clubs.

Cheshire Classic Car and Motorcycle Show

The Cheshire Classic Car and Motorcycle Show has been held continuously since 1982, generally at the end of the summer. The show takes place at Capesthorne Hall, where visitors can see over 500 classic vehicles, including over 100 motorcycles. Over 40 trade stands offer related products or concessions. The event includes judged competitions with a "Best of Show" award presented at the end of the day. Mercedes Benz provides a staged display in front of the Hall, and the area is surrounded by parkland, nestled next to a lake. Visitors to the show may enjoy free parking and are permitted to bring dogs on leashes. Entrance to the estate's formal gardens is included with the show admission. Entrance to the house is available at an additional fee.
