Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Rides

Have you ever wanted to take a ride in one of TV and films most iconic cars? Well this is your chance!

During school holidays and weekends from March to October*, a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang reconstruction will be returning to Beaulieu. This magnificent motor, built using authentic parts from one of the film’s Chittys, will be driving round the attraction grounds for all to admire. Visitors now have the chance to book their own ride and take their seat in this ‘fine-four-fendered-friend’ for a spin around the grounds of the National Motor Museum.

This truly unique experience will be sure to last long in the memory of any Chitty Chitty Bang Bang fanatic.

Check out the experience


What’s included?

Starting from the arena outside the National Motor Museum, you will be picked up by our driver, who will provide you with hats, caps and goggles to dress up if you wish. You will then embark on a parade around the attraction, heading down Chestnut Avenue towards Palace House. Once at Palace House, Chitty will park up for your special photo opportunity (remember to share your snaps with us on social!).  You will then head back on a gentle drive, taking you around the National Motor Museum and back to the arena. The experience will last approximately 20 minutes. 


Those that would like to climb aboard one of TV and films most iconic cars, can do so during school holidays and weekends from March to October*.  Rides will take place between 11am – 1pm, and 2pm – 4pm at 30 minute intervals.

*Please note that unfortunately this experience cannot take place during wet weather conditions or on busy event days.
