About This Attraction
At the heart of the New Forest, Beaulieu is a multi-award winning family day out with something for everyone.
The National Motor Museum
With over 280 vehicles in its world famous collection, the Museum tells the story of motoring in Britain from humble beginnings to the present day. Displays include classic cars, historic sporting motors, modern rally cars, F1 racers and a rustic 1930’s country garage.
World of Top Gear
World of Top Gear recreates the feel of the Top Gear Studio. See unique behind the scenes footage from Top Gear HQ and cars from the show’s most ambitious challenges.
From March 15th 2020, let your imagination run wild in Little Beaulieu, the enchanting new play area at Beaulieu for all ages.
Explore the magnificent Palace House – Lord Montagu’s family home since 1538 – and discover the history of the house and its former residents. Meet the Butler, Cook and Housemaids and gain an insight into the workings of a Victorian country house.
See recently opened never-before-seen rooms and a newly installed collection of unique Russian Art. Plus visit the restored Victorian Kitchen which has been put back to it’s original layout.
Beaulieu Abbey was largely destroyed by Henry VIII – but the conserved ruins show the scale of this formerly vast complex. An ancient Abbey building houses a fascinating exhibition on Monastic Life.
Uncover the truth behind Beaulieu’s covert wartime role in the Secret Army Exhibition, see your TV and film favourites in On Screen Cars, and enjoy unlimited rides on the mile-long Monorail and replica Veteran Bus.
A visit to Beaulieu includes entry to the whole of the attraction, including the National Motor Museum, On Screen Cars, the World of Top Gear, Secret Army Exhibition, 13th century Beaulieu Abbey and the stunning grounds and gardens.
