We're delighted to offer the above dates for eight Open Days throughout 2017 - these are a great chance for enthusiasts to visit our workshops, view some magnificent cars in varying stages of restoration (and occasionally some looking for new homes), learn from our skilled craftsmen about their work, and meet like-minded car owners.

There is an award-winning local pub over the road which does great food, available for bookings (http://thefiveallsfilkins.co.uk/). The Cotswold Woollen Weavers is in the same village, and not far from us you can find the Cotswold Wildlife Park and idyllic town of Burford to add a little more variety to your day.

If you are a marque specific or a general car club, or a group of mechanically minded individuals come and see us, and get a feel for all aspects of vintage and classic car restoration.

We aim to limit groups’ sizes to 24 visitors. We also ask visitors are extremely careful not to touch any of the vehicles, parts, tools and equipment. And please be careful of zips, camera straps, jewelry etc. as these can easily damage paintwork and/or get caught in equipment.

Last year all of the available dates became fully booked early in the year – so if you are interested in booking a slot please get in touch ASAP.

If you'd like to visit, please call or email us at least two weeks in advance to make sure there are enough places available (+44 (0) 1367 810 438 / enquiries@fiennes.co.uk).
