In the heart of the glorious New Forest, Beaulieu is one of the South's top visitor attractions. Here you will find the National Motor Museum, home to over 250 vehicles telling the history of motoring. You can also visit Palace House and Gardens, home of the Montagu family since 1538, the remains of Beaulieu Abbey and World of Top Gear where you can see some of the vehicles from Jeremey, James and Richard's most ambitious challenges. Ride on the high level Monorail or climb aboard the replica 1912 open top London bus for a fun way to see Beaulieu's sights.

We visited Beaulieu on Easter Monday. It was busy but not so much that it hindered our visit at all. We took the Monorail ride first, which showed us where everything was at the Park. We loved the Motor Museum best but Palace House was excellent as well. We are pleased that our tickets give us entry to the Motor... More

We visited Beaulieu on a fairly quiet Monday morning. Our first port of call was the Top Gear experience. We absolutely loved it! Showing hilights of this extraordinary series, set amongst cars and memorabilia from the series (the Stig's suit!!!), this just refreshed the memories and made me so happy to be there. A lovely cup of tea at the... More

We have been before around 5/6years ago. Sadly very little has changed in this time. However that did not stop us enjoying a trip through history. Lovely family day out for our 13 year-old and two 8 year olds who very much enjoyed their day. If we visit again we will take a picnic (there is plenty of arears) as... More

Lovely location. Great day out with mixture of gardens, the stately home, historic abbey, monorail, go-karts and of course the motor museum. Friendly staff who in the museum were keen to share with us some interesting facts. All the family enjoyed our time there and we were pleased there weren\'t too many people there when we visited during the Easter... More

Finally made it here - managed to get an on-line discount which helped! Staff welcoming on arrival. The Motor Museum was very good and quite impressive. It was nicely presented as well which made it interesting. Went on the Monorail - quite small cars which made getting in and out interesting... The gardens were very pretty and we also went... More

Visited with my children who are 2 and 5. Had a wonderful, full day out. They enjoyed the whole day and there was plenty to keep young children occupied. Loved the place and cant wait to go back. Fun for all the family.

We've been attending Beaulieu Boat Jumble every year since about 2005 or 2006, but this will be the last time we come. The number of traders was drastically reduced this year - the event didn't even reach the edge of the 'Trunk Traders' field, and there was nothing past the central cross-roads. The reduced size is very very disappointing for... More
