Pre-booked this for my husbands birthday. Thought we would spend the whole day ;looking around, but even walking around at leisure and stopping for a drink and a snack we were done in 3hrs. It is a great place but a little over priced.

Not far from Southampton if you like your cars, then this place is a must. Some of the finest cars ever built and in wonderful condition. Cars from your past, cars you have owned, or perhaps your parents owned years ago, and some of the earliest cars ever built.

Really interesting place because there is such a variety of things to do. The motor museum was the highlight. It was so well presented that everyone found it entertaining, even those in the party who were not quite as enthusiastic about cars as some. Pity the restaurant didn't achieve the same standard. There was a limited choice of food and... More

We spent a most interesting day at Beaulieu, dodged the drizzle by visiting Palace House which was warm and friendly and full of lovely pictures and furniture -the history of the Montagues. Then off in the old bus to travel the monorail and then inside to view the huge range of cars and motorbikes-all of various ages. There's a lot... More

We enjoy coming to Beaulieu and love the Motor Museum. We particularly enjoy the summer when you have events on most weekends (cars, lorries, and bikes) and our favourite weekends of all must be the Boat and Auto Jumbles. In the grounds there is the family house to see the WW2 Special Operations Executive museum and the monorail. We really... More

My partner and I enjoyed a fantastic day at the Beaulieu Motor Museum. It was a birthday treat and whilst we were there one of the members of staff (Bill) allowed my partner to sit in a few of the cars which really did make his day very special. I cannot thank Bill enough for his knowledge and making our... More

We always enjoy visiting Beaulieu. This time cars, Top Gear, the simulator, the monorail, and the SOE Museum which is unmissable and moving. The facilities are great. The food options are really good. We didn't manage to see the House or Abbey this time.
