Leighton Hall in Carnforth is nestled against a backdrop of the Lake District fells and the beautiful west coast not far from Lancaster and the M6.  Such a backdrop is perfect to display a huge selection of classic vehicles, including classic cars, Land Rovers, motorcycles, vans, kit cars, custom, modern classics, trucks, 4x4s, military vehicles and commercials.  Great British Motor Shows are delighted to be back at the beginning of July for what has proven to be a very popular show.

There’s an array of enthusiasts who‘ll be showcasing their pride and joy on Leighton’s terrace and park with a chance to talk to the owners and swap top tips and stories.  Browse plentiful trade stands and the ever-popular auto-jumble for the chance to pick up that elusive bargain or spare part. Then sit and relax to highlights of the classic car world with full arena displays and commentary throughout the day.

There’s plenty for everyone in the family to look forward to, as Leighton boasts acres of parkland and gardens, a nineteenth century walled garden, woodland walks and children’s discovery trails. House tours and further venue information, please visit www.leightonhall.co.uk

Visitors are invited to use the gardens, stroll through the woodland walk and enjoy the tree face trial. There’s plenty of outdoor activities to keep the children happy including the caterpillar maze, Bee corner, insect hotel, brass rubbings and play area.
Private classic cars are warmly welcome.

Guided Tours on the day

Let our knowledgeable and friendly guides lead you through the years with the tales and anecdotes of the house and family, at times serious at other times not so serious but always reflecting the true actions, activities, occurrences and consequences of the periods.

This house, a true gem in the heart of Lancashire, has influenced so much in the county and yet remains unspoiled and a genuine reflection of Lancashire’s turbulent history.
