Whether you can dance on ice like Torvill and Dean, or your skating moves are more akin to Bambi, a visit to the Museum’s Ice Rink is a must this festive season. Soak up the atmosphere from our new Café Bar and balcony The Café Bar has a bird's-eye view of the rink and is open daily until the Ice Rink closes. Non-skaters are welcome.

Bonham's London to Brighton Veteran Car Run
04 November 2018

Bonham's London to Brighton Veteran Car Run

The Royal Automobile Club's annual London to Brighton Veteran Car Run (LBVCR) is the world's longest running motoring event. It attracts entrants from all over the globe and for the owners of these highly valuable Veteran cars it represents a rare opportunity to take their extraordinary automobiles on the 60-mile run from Hyde Park in central London to the seafront on the Sussex resort of Brighton.

This annual event commemorates the Emancipation Run of 14 November 1896 which celebrated the passing into law of the Locomotives on the Highway Act, which raised the speed limit for 'light locomotives' from 4 mph to 14 mph and abolished the requirement for these vehicles to be preceded by a man on foot.

Over 30 pioneer motorists set off from London on the 1896 Run to endure the rough roads to the Sussex seaside resort but only 14 of the starters actually made the journey, and some evidence exists that one car was taken by rail and covered with mud before crossing the finishing line!

The cars set off from Hyde Park Corner between 7am and 8.45am. If you want to see them let the night receptionist know and he will arrange an early breakfast for you
