Thoroughly enjoyed the day, plenty to see and experience. Motorcycles and cars really interesting plus mono rail. Antique bus, gardens, house and church.
Good day out.

£24.75 on the door for a ticket was a little steep and prices in the restaurant were ridiculous at nearly £5 for a basic sandwich. Also a shame there was no separate entrance for pre paid tickets.

That said, there is a lot to do at Beaulieu with something to do for all ages.

The children got the most excitement out of the playground and monorail and open top bus, which actually were free aspects with purchase of a ticket.

The top gear area was interesting for petrol heads, didn't really understand the screening section, where it was basically just an advert for both series of top gear.

The simulator was fun but horrendously overpriced at £12 for a family of 4, including very small children. There was no discount for the toddlers. Lasted about 3 minutes. £5 would have been about right.

The open top bus is great and runs very regularly, taking visitors all over the site which is useful for the less able.

Beaulieu manor was lovely and educational and lovingly showcased, with real excerpts from the family who lived there. No toilets in tbe manor, so be prepared and go before you step inside.

Amazing topiary to be found if you're an avid gardener or garden lover. We are not so can't comment further on this aspect but the trees and avenues, vegetable patch and flowers were all very well kept and I'm sure included some extremely old varieties.

Toilets well maintained and efficient hand dryers.

Gift shop was magnificent with loads of choice for all budgets.

Finished the day with a very good cup of brew company tea (ample for 2 cups) in the teapot.

Recommend for a whole day trip. Seek discounts or buy tickets online to save and gain maximum fulfilment.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. It sounds like you had a busy day.

The best value tickets (£19.50) can be purchased online, up to one day in advance. There are separate queues in visitor reception during peak times for advance and on the day tickets.

We are sorry that you weren’t made aware of the toilets in Palace House, which our house staff can direct visitors to, while alternative toilets are located in the nearby Beaulieu Abbey.

We had a wonderful day at Beaulieu and would highly recommend it. My husband has mobility problems but we booked a scooter and it was waiting for us when we arrived, it made a great difference to the visit. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and we enjoyed our lunch at the restaurant, although some items were pricey for what they were. Due to the terrible weather we did not get to the house but we will most certainly return at another time to do this. The village of Beaulieu is very pretty with horses and donkeys roaming freely. You will not be disappointed in your visit.

Really enjoyed the day. The cars were great but enjoyed the house even more. The experience would of been even better if there was a video giving the history of the house and the events that occurred
