Celebrate a traditional Christmas...

Travel back in time and visit the Victorian Montagu family home this festive season.

Visit us between 22 December - 6 January* to see what the Montagu family members would have been doing during the festive season of 1889.

*Please note the Beaulieu attraction will be closed on Christmas Day. We will also close at 4pm on 22 - 24 Dec due to the Christmas at Beaulieu evening event.
