In the heart of the glorious New Forest, Beaulieu is one of the South's top visitor attractions. Here you will find the National Motor Museum, home to over 250 vehicles telling the history of motoring. You can also visit Palace House and Gardens, home of the Montagu family since 1538, the remains of Beaulieu Abbey and World of Top Gear where you can see some of the vehicles from Jeremey, James and Richard's most ambitious challenges. Ride on the high level Monorail or climb aboard the replica 1912 open top London bus for a fun way to see Beaulieu's sights.

This is what the privileged few with land and money should be doing with their estates. The best motor museum I have seen and the Top Gear museum is brilliant, great to see what the cars on TV look like up close. Huge grounds to explore, ancient abbey, ruins and monorail ride, not for those afraid of heights. Also small... More

This is a brilliant Cafe with lots of choice and really helpful staff. Spacious and Mobility Scooter friendly. We brought family with us, one of whom is 100%Coeliac (from Mallorca) and were delighted to find the head chef understood completely the importance of food prep in a Gluten Free environment. I had telephoned prior to our visit and was completely... More

My husband and I decided to go here for his birthday. He loves cars and we know the New Forest is a beautiful place to visit. There is plenty of parking and it's free which is nice. Unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side so both the Go Karts and Monorail were closed for the day. The first area we... More

Beaulieu certainly as something for everyone. The cars are amazing and it was great to see some of the cars used on Top Gear. The house is a must see and it is really fascinating to learn of the history of the Montagus right up to the present day. Especially interesting was the SOE (Special Operations Executive) exhibition detailing how... More

We really enjoyed the Motor Museum and the Palace, but the Top Gear experience is now out of date and needs to be closed and only revived if the new show takes off. We're going back within six days to see the Secret Beaulieu exhibition using our existing tickets. Its very sensible to book on-line in advance to gain great... More

I loved to see the "arranged" cars in the Workshop, etc. The cars and motorbikes are in good condition and show the evolution and craftmanship of long gone times. Staff and volounteers were brilliant.

Lots to do for all age groups ~ wonderful display of vintage cars & memorabilia including the iconic Bluebird & stylish motors associated with the London to Brighton car rally. Tours available on various themes - a February visit was good as there were not too many visitors & therefore most events were easily accessible. We also enjoyed the visit... More

Weather was cold and windy but we had another great day out at Beaulieu. Plenty to see and do indoors and can't wait to see everything again when the sun is shining.

Spent the whole day with lots of cars & motorbikes (classic & vintage) to see & Top Gear Experience. The only down side is the restaurant has not much choices of food and very expensive. A half bowl of chip costs £2.50, otherwise plenty to see and do. As for ticket price is very expensive on the day therefore recommend... More
