    I'm fom Australia so please be gentle.

    Salon Prive is on at the same time as the Concourse at Hampton Court. So I have 2 questions.
    1. Which one do people think is best for the cars?
    2. What's the politics or story of why these 2 great events are on at exactly the same time?
    I have never been to either. I'm going to Goodwood the week after so thought I would go to one of these as well.
    Thanks

    There are threads around here covering both over the years so one option might be to see which photos from previous years appeal most - my sense is Blenheim is bigger - I know one has a modern car Sunday so again the website for each might suggest which appeals more for which day - another option might be to do both on consecutive days !

    As to why they clash........

    Never been to Prive but I really like the Hampton Court Concours. Admission tickets are reasonably priced and it is a nice setting (entrance tickets also admit you to the palace itself). I thought the quality of cars in 2019 was slightly down on previous years though.

    Strongly recommend Salon Privé at Blenheim Palace. Huge house, tons of gorgeous cars and very nice people. All perfectly organized by the Bagleys.
