London Motorfair (London Motor Show) was an alternative London auto show to the British International Motor Show, that was held at Earls Court biannually from 1977 to 1999.[1] In 1993, when the event won the support of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) and P&O Events, the name changed from "Motorfair" to "The London Motor Show".

The London Motor Show returned in May 2016 at Battersea Park,[2] with Prince Michael of Kent as its patron.[3] The second London Motor Show took place from 5 to 7 May 2017.


The second of the “relaunched” London Motor Show ran from 4–7 May 2017, again in Battersea Park, with forty exhibitors. There were four premiers in the United Kingdom, as apposed to two in 2016.

The relaunched London Motor Show ran from 5–8 May 2016 in Battersea Park, with forty exhibitors. There were two premiers in the United Kingdom, and the launch of the prototype hydrogen car, Riversimple.


The show ran from October 20–31, and included Classic Car Day (October 26) and special Motorsport Days (October 27–28).[7]





The 1991 Motor Show was larger than previous years, with the use of the new extension of Earls Court 2, opened by Princess Diana on 17 October for the Motorfair.[20]
