During May half-term we invited visitors to join us for loads of time travel themed activities. From a real ancient abbey to futuristic cars, we had a blast!

We Travelled in time...

We invited visitors to see Beaulieu from a different perspective as they travelled through time in The National Motor Museum to find something from each decade.

...Explored medieval traditions...

Visitors walked in the footsteps of medieval monks in Beaulieu Abbey and witnessed amazing traditions from the past, including archery and falconry demonstrations.

...Experienced Life as a monk...

Brother William & Brother Peter welcomed visitors to the middle ages in Beaulieu Abbey. They could even dress as a monk and learn to write with a quill.

...stepped back into the victorian era...

Visitors discovered what life was like in the Victorian Palace House, dressing up in costumes, playing traditional games and even meeting the cook in Palace House kitchen, which has been newly restored to the original layout.

... and designed a future car

We loved seeing your designs of a futuristic vehicle; we hope one day your visions might become a reality!
