Children wondering how to give their parents a memorable day out for Father’s Day – on Sunday, June 15 – need look no further ... English Heritage will be hosting the ultimate day out for dads at its Classic Cars event at Audley End House & Gardens.

In an event that is suitable for all, a charming collection of classic cars will be on display, with the chance to discover what it takes to take care of a dream motor.

There will be something to keep the whole family entertained as they marvel at the eclectic range of shapes, sizes, and shimmering metal.

Some of the impressive vehicles on show will include a 1926 Morris (Oxford 3/4 Coupe), a 1970 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow Series 1 and a Jaguar Silverstone Convertible (No 11 of 50).
