About the Concours

Why Salon Privé?

Every car on the South Lawn has a story – whether it be of racing pedigree, a prestigious former owner or perhaps an infamous crash followed by an impeccable restoration – and all are special. With the backdrop of Blenheim Palace and a panel of the world’s most experienced and knowledgeable Concours experts examining the show field, there is no better place for these stories to be told than Salon Privé.

The Experience

Inclusive of four days’ exclusive events, hospitality, and entertainment for you and a guest, the 2022 Concours d’Elégance will truly be something to remember, whether you’re a veteran supporter of Salon Privé or planning to join us for the first time.


Selection & Judging

We believe the only way to hold a legitimate, competitive Concours is to arrange entries by Class. In doing so, all are fairly judged amongst cars from the correct period.

With Salon Privé established at Blenheim Palace, the UK has an international Concours to be justifiably proud of. World-class to match the very best.

View Judges


Taking home silverware is hugely rewarding for both owners and restorers. In 2020, 51 prizes were awarded during the Salon Privé Concours d’Elégance, celebrating the history, provenance and presentation of treasured classics.

Presented over two days, awards are judged by our ICJAG Jury and invited specialist Judges, with a special few awarded by the Duke of Marlborough, our Chairman and the guests of Salon Privé.
