Rev Up for A Celebratory Classic Car and Bike Event in Raby
FOR the 25th time, Raby Castle in County Durham will fling open its gates for a roaring good classic car and bike event on Sunday, August 13th.
Following the huge success of the event in June, auto aficionados in and around the area are invited to return to the venue for The Raby Castle Classic Vehicle Show, which this time around celebrates its silver anniversary. The show is ideal for anyone who wants to marvel at a whole host of classic cars and vintage vehicles and as it’s a special anniversary for organiser Mark Woodward, there’ll be plenty of other activities lined up, too.
Admission is £7 in advance for adults and just £2.50 for children and includes entry to the parks, grounds, tea room, gift shop and horse carriage museum. You can also pay separately for admission to the castle itself from 1pm.
On the day, expect everything from classic cars and bikes, trucks, vans, tractors, arena commentary and the popular autojumble. There’s also over 100 display cars attending on the Jaguar Driver’s Club stand. Set in the beautiful Deer Park at Raby Castle, the event is not to be missed.
Raby Castle is a stunning place to visit, boasting beautiful grounds and plenty of picturesque spots to enjoy a picnic. Get ready to uncover some local history, too. Built by the Nevills in the 14th Century, the building was home to Lord Barnard’s family since 1926. Today, you can still enjoy dramatic architecture, a stroll around the grounds, and a chance to spot deer and wildlife in the Deer Park. Save some time for the Walled Gardens, before sipping a hot cuppa or two in the Castle’s quaint tearoom.
Kids will love burning off some energy in the venue’s grounds, while dogs are welcome if they’re well behaved. Head to http://www.rabycastle.com or www.markwoodwardclassicevents.com for more information about what you can look forward to on the day.
Raby Castle is located at Staindrop, Darlington, Co. Durham, DL2 3AH.
