The Peachtree MG Registry invites you to join us for Brits In The Valley, a British Car Weekend in Columbus, GA.

The Columbus Marriott, our host hotel, has a block of rooms at the discounted price of $149 per night (excl. applicable taxes and fees). The hotel is only a few blocks away (within walking distance) from the venues for our activities and from Broadway, the downtown area with restaurants and shops.

Columbus and the location of the Marriott hotel, are very family friendly with interesting and fun things to do for all ages, including the downtown Whitewater Express with kayaking, tubing, and a zipline across the river into Alabama. There are also many interesting museums incl. Ma Rainey Blues, Columbus Art, Civil War Navy, National Infantry, and several more. So, please bring children, grandchildren, teenagers, and friends of all ages.
