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.

Not just a motor museum but an abbey and a mansion and extensive grounds make this visit a whole day out. Well worth a visit but choose a sunny day.

Fantastic museum. Beautiful cars. Welcoming employees. What a great time to wonder amount some of the most beautiful cars in the world. Seeing the Golden Arrow in real life was awesome.

It costs a lot to visit here, even seniors only get a £1 discount and then there are extras to pay for tours or experiences or even for the kiddies little car ride. I think this is unacceptable when you've already forked out the best part of £100 to get in. I was extremely disappointed for an extra £1 here... More

Just returned from an excellent day spent at Beaulieu motor museum and Palace house. We paid £1 each for the private tour of the house, which was informative and amusing and lasted about 45 mins - a true must! Allow at least 4 - 5 hours to see everything.

I liked the setting of this beautiful compound. The Museum was very interesting, you see cars from very early age to now. There is even a part with a Top Gear Museum!

I had the opportunity to visit with a group of older people. The house, abbey and gardens were a delight to walk round and the displays were well thought out - mixture of signs, photos and artifacts. The bus trip and monorail gave opportunity to see where everything was - shame that the monorail is not accessible to those who... More

I last visited Beaulieu about 20 years ago, and I was disappointed on this return trip. At £24 a head for adults, it's not cheap, but there's no real value for money. Everything looked tired and in need of a lick of paint, and some old favourites have disappeared, like the lovely old apothecary style shop that sold soaps and... More

Although many favourite exhibits have remained, new exhibits... More

Lots to see and do and I particularly enjoyed travelling on a pre first world war I bus. There is a Top gear presentation which was great for fans of the show but this will be changing now as all the presenters were sacked. The second world war section on the SOE was also really good. all in all a... More
