Let your imagination run wild in Little Beaulieu, the enchanting new play area at Beaulieu.
The wonderful new adventure play area is the perfect place for children to explore. Clamber around a wooden replica of Palace House, uncover secret passageways, follow the treetop boardwalk and ride the zip wire. There’s an adventure around every corner.
Magical Wooden Palace
Storm up the bridge of Little Beaulieu's magical wooden palace. The fantasy play area is filled with fun features to try and secret passageways to discover.
Who goes there? Peek out from behind portraits and crawl through a trick bookcase. Keep an eye out for the secret staircase and the clock tower lookout.
Let off steam
Let off steam on the epic climbing wall and follow the treetop boardwalk to the observation tower to get a birds-eye view as the monorail flies past (from 12 April). Don't get in a tangle as you tackle the tricky rope maze room!
Shh! Crawl through the top secret tunnel, then feel the wind in your hair as you ride the zip wire.
Keep on Track
The Little Beaulieu roadway will lead you in the right direction. Get behind the wheel of a wooden car, swing on the bar rings and keep your balance on the stepping stones.
Little visitors will have their very own zone of Little Beaulieu, with a sandpit for special excavations and an impressive wooden play bus - modelled on Beaulieu's Veteran Bus.
Let's help each other to stay safe
We have put in place some new measures to help each other stay safe whilst enjoying Little Beaulieu.
- Give each other room.
- Be patient and kind to each other when using the play equipment. Wait for the equipment to become free.
- Keep little and big hands clean, sanitise or wash them regularly.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes.
- Not consume food on the play equipment and to use the bins provided.
Take a Break
When you are all played out, treat the family to some takeaway refreshments from the on-site cafe. From cake to a range of snacks and light bites, there will be something for everyone. There will be plenty of space to picnic within the Beaulieu parkland.
behind the scenes
Little Beaulieu is inspired by the real history of the site and its architectural features. From the charming towers and entrances that reflect Palace House, to the stunning arches of the Beaulieu Abbey ruins.
Little Beaulieu has been brought to life by industry-leading adventure play area designers and builders CAP.Co Adventure Play, whose ingenious past projects have included builds for fellow Treasure Houses of England as well as the creation of an intimate wooden stage for Glastonbury Festival.
