We have partnered with Land Rover Experience West Country to give Simply Land Rover visitors the opportunity to try Beaulieu’s very own off-road Forest Drive.
Get your wheels dirty and put your Land Rover through its paces in the woodland surrounding Beaulieu. With steep slopes, plenty of bumps and the odd water crossing, our course is the perfect playground for your Land Rover.
Land Rover Experience – Forest Drive
Take your own Land Rover around our hour long adventure! To participate in an own car drive, you must have your own Land Rover to use on this course when purchasing a ticket.
No Land Rover? No problem!
If you don’t have a Landy of your own (or don’t want to get your pride and joy muddy!), you can book a slot to drive or ride in a Land Rover Experience vehicle.
Driver of a LRE vehicle*
Back for 2024, we are able to offer visitors the ability to drive one of the Land Rover Experience Vehicles through our Forest Drive Route. Supported in the vehicle by one of the LRE instructors, you will be in safe hands.
*Spaces are limited to one driver per convoy so book early to avoid disappointment.
Passenger in a LRE vehicle
Passenger seats in Land Rover Experience Vehicles are also available. Jump in with your friend driving the vehicle to capture all the action, or hop in with a professional who will take the wheel.
Each convoy includes up to 12 participants’ own vehicles, as well as a lead and tail Land Rover Experience vehicle. Please note there is limited availability for each time slot, and only one driver slot available per convoy. You will be required to choose your time slot upon purchasing your ticket.

DRIVING IN THE NEW FOREST
We are very lucky to be located in the heart of the New Forest however this does offer up some unique hazards on the roads.
Please drive carefully and responsibly when attending our events and be aware of free-roaming animals and cyclists on the roads. Due to the close proximity of our neighbours, please be respectful when entering and leaving the event.
