Travel info

Here we’ve a menu (on the left) of information to help you plan your visit to the International Mini Meeting 2014 at the Kent Showground.

Buy your tickets, find ideas of places to stay and plan your route.  More information will be added so make sure you’re following our twitter or facebook pages.

If you are taking a ferry to the IMM, then even though this is the busiest weekend of the year, we have negiotiated a discount of 10% for travel through Thurs 31 July – Mon 4 August on the Dover-Calais route.

Alternatively if you want to travel by they will give a discount if 15 vehicles book and travel together.

If you are not bringing your mini and plan to fly to the IMM, the nearest main airport is either London Gatwick, where you will need to catch the Gatwick Express train to London Bridge and then a suburban train to Maidstone East. You should be able to get a taxi from there for the last three miles. You could also fly to London City airport and then use the Docklands Light Railway to Stratford International, then link to trains to Maidstone West and then get a taxi for the last four miles.

If you want to come in your Camper Van or Caravan and you want an electrical hook up and water, there is a nearby caravan site called Scragged Oak Caravan Park with 60 spaces allocated for IMM visitor use, at preferential rates. Some have electric hook ups and there are the usual campsite facilities.

This site is ‘outside’ the showground and is under the jurisdiction of the Kent Event Centre, not the IMM organisers. To book visit: . Alternatively you can stay on the IMM site, without electric. You will be allocated a bigger pitch and there is an extra charge of £15, unless you meet the following criteria: • If your caravan or trailer tent is towed by a Mini or MINI and is under 500kg then there will be no additional charge.

We look forward to welcoming you to the IMM 2014.

Mini In The Park conveniently takes place one week after IMM2014, allowing international visitors to attend both of these great Mini events in the UK.
