Concours of Elegance Returns to Hampton Court

The Concours of Elegance, presented by A. Lange & Söhne at Hampton Court Palace, has opened ticket sales for its 2024 edition.  

The three-day automotive extravaganza, now firmly established as Europe’s finest concours event, and one of the top three globally, will return to the grounds of Hampton Court Palace from Friday 30th August to Sunday September 1st with a jaw-dropping array of 70 automotive rarities.

The event’s 13th edition will build on the success of a standout 2023 show, which included a landmark Le Mans centenary celebration, assembling arguably the most spectacular range of road and competition machinery ever seen on UK soil. 


2024’s edition is set to reach new heights, convening the world’s rarest, most historically significant motorcars – many of which have never been seen in Britain before – all in the immaculate gardens of the UK’s most stunning historic royal palace.

The main concours display, curated by a panel of leading figures in the collector car world, will assemble cars in a wide range of categories, from the world’s most revered marques, and reflecting full sweep of automotive history.  


The cars will be meticulously set around the glittering central fountain, and flanked by rows of glorious, three-hundred-year-old yew trees. The event will culminate in the awarding of the coveted Best in Show – uniquely chosen by the owners of the cars themselves, rather than a committee – before the ‘Grand Départ’ on Sunday evening, which will see the concours competitors roar out of the palace grounds. 

Alongside the main concours display, the event will assemble 900 further cars in a series of special features and displays, including the women only Levitt Concours, Thirty Under 30 concours – which celebrates the next generation of collector, displays from the UK’s leading car clubs, as well as a Gooding & Company collector car auction. 


James Brooks-Ward, Concours of Elegance CEO, said: “We are delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale for Concours of Elegance 2024. Our Curatorial team are already working flat out to build on the great success of 2023’s landmark show. 

“We’re determined to make 2024 our greatest event yet, with a truly jaw-dropping array of precious – in some cases mythical – machinery, drawn from the world’s leading private collections. It is, once again, going to be a peerless automotive extravaganza in the most spectacular setting: Hampton Court Palace. We will be announcing details of star cars in the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned for more announcements.”

Away from the automotive displays, Concours of Elegance 2024 will again be an occasion of pure luxury, with champagne provided by Charles Heidsieck, picnics by Fortnum & Mason, and a collection of art, jewellery and fashion displays. Presenting Partner A. Lange & Söhne will once again showcase some of its most intricate timepieces.
