Great couple of days spent at Beaulieu. Much more to see and do than we expected and all very interesting. Not just a Motor Museum either. Add Bucklers Hard to that and it's over all very diverse experience several facets of Britain's Heritage.

The Motor Museum was brilliant. It entertained two ten year olds and I learnt a lot as well. The staff were polite and the whole day was thoroughly enjoyable. I thought that Palace House and the Abbey were less entertaining but the bus ride and the monorail was good.

I booked tickets to Beaulieu for my Dad's 70th birthday because he loves cars and motorbikes. When we arrived, there was so much more to see and do that we made a weekend of it and visited the following day because we didn't have time to see everything on the first day! The motor museum is brilliant, even the kids... More

We visited at the weekend, it was a very good day out, the cars are amazing, but you also get to visit the house and Abbey which makes the experience even better. The staff are very knowledgeable and extremely friendly.

I booked this as a treat for my husband. However I found it much more interesting than I expected. A certain amount of social history, rather than just the technical stats of cars. I especially liked the screen cars and the Top Gear section.

Myself, my brother and his 16 year old daughter went on a chilly January week day and if you want to see the cars, house and abbey without the crowds my brother assures me a cold winters day is the best. My first visit as I now live in Australia but he assures me summer, though more likely crowded, is... More

There is plenty to see and do at this museum and it is really suitable for all weathers apart from walking between locations. We managed to get an annual pass so will visit again with our grandson who has asked to go.

My wife and I recently enjoyed a short break in the New Forest, and paid a visit to Beaulieu. I had visited many years ago with my Grandfather, and have wanted to return ever since. My wife is not nearly as in to cars as I am, but she thoroughly enjoyed watching me revert into an excited boy, pouring over... More

Beaulieu will transport you back to your youth ,you will cars that you grow up with. It's an amazing collection of cars and motor bikes. Lots to see and do so you will need all day. A little disappointing as a disabled visitor the only lift in the museum was out of order so I had to find a member... More
