Twenty Seven vintage cars will descend on Walmer Castle on Sunday as part of the National Drive It Day celebrations.

Andy Worwood, a member of the South Kent region of the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club, said: "The day for the drivers will start with a hearty breakfast, before setting out along the scenic roads of Kent and onwards, reaching their final destination of Walmer Castle at around 11.15am."

He added: "We have an amazing 27 cars, which are made up of: two E-Types, four Mk2's, one Mk10, one Series 2, seven X300 range, three XJS's, two XK120's, one S-Type, one X-Type, two X350's, two XK 8's, two XF's and one Daimler Six."

Members of the public are welcome to view the cars and chat to the drivers.

The Walmer Castle event is one of many being held across the country this Sunday. They are always organised on the nearest Sunday to St George's Day.

This year's event is one of many being organised nationally by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) in commemoration of the 64 cars that took part in the Royal Automobile Club's thousand mile trail across Britain in 1900.

Mr Worwood added: "Anyone who owns a Jaguar or Daimler, that was produced under Jaguar ownership, is more than welcome to join the Kent South Region of the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club.

"The Kent South branch is very grateful to English Heritage and the staff at Walmer Castle for allowing us to use their location for this years’ event."

The cars will be available to view at Walmer Castle car park from 11.15am on Sunday.
