Beaulieu is an award winning family visitor attraction in the heart of the New Forest National Park with over 800 years of heritage.
where will you visit first?
From the earliest motor carriages to classic family saloons, the world-famous National Motor Museum has one of the finest collections of cars, motorcycles and motoring memorabilia in the world.
Palace House, once the gatehouse of the medieval Beaulieu Abbey, has been the Montagu family home since 1538.
This 800 year old Abbey was founded by King John in the 13th Century before being destroyed on the orders of King Henry VIII in 1538.
There’s nothing like losing yourself in Beaulieu’s serene grounds and gardens via the network of footpaths that criss-cross the attraction.
The World of Top Gear features vehicles from every era of the Top Gear challenges, including favourites like the Reliant Robin Space Shuttle and the Dampervan.

See the real cars that have featured in some of the most famous films ever produced, from James Bond’s Jaguar XKR in Die Another Day, to the Flying Ford Anglia featured in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Enjoy unlimited rides on the mile-long monorail and replica 1912 open-topped London bus. The monorail is the oldest in England and even passes through the roof of the National Motor Museum!

We had a really superb day. We took our 11 year old granddaughter and wondered if she was either too old or too young. We needn’t have worried as she enjoyed every bit of it... Thank you to every member of staff we met, they were so friendly and welcoming.
Fantastic family day out - something for everyone!
