A ‘Thirty Years of Adventure' Volkswagen California mural inspired by the best locations in the guide has also been commissioned. The mural, produced by artist Jo Hicks, features the original T3 Volkswagen California and current T6 California 30 Years edition surrounded by some of the classic symbols of the great British holiday. It will be on display for the entire month of November on a feature wall at 77 Clerkenwell Rd, Hatton Wall, London, EC1N 8HX.

The legendary Volkswagen California was first released in 1988 and since then has been the symbol of individual freedom, unforgettable holidays and pure adventure. Alongside the special travel guide, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has also produced a limited run of 999 unique California 30 Years models with just 30 destined for the UK.
