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 a fantastic place to visit, especially if you have kids. There is so much to do and you can return again for free within 6 days if you didn't have a chance to see everything. Entrance was a little bit pricey but we managed to get cheaper tickets online. Its a great day out, especially on a sunny... More

I visited Beaulieu on a day trip with a group of older people; so did not test out attractions aimed at younger visitors but they were certainly in evidence. A few of us started the day in the cafe where my friends had to complain about their croissants but these were rapidly changed to bacon rolls with no fuss. I... More

We finally visited after being in the area several years in a row, but never quite managing to get to the Motor Museum. As a family non of us would class ourselves as car enthusiast but thought we'd give the place a try anyway. We're glad we did. At first I thought the entry price was quite expensive, but we... More

Really friendly, knowledgeable staff in the palace that turned our one hour visit into half a day of fun and exploring.

We visited with our children and grandchildren. Everyone was impressed with the site and the friendly staff and volunteers. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the Top Gear exhibit and the Motor Museum as well as the extra entertainment such as the vintage car rides and Victorian games. The youngest enjoyed the bus ride and the monorail too. I've never been disappointed... More

Took our Grandson, age 11, on his second visit. Bought a Family ticket (£48 for 2 Adults, and 1 child but we could have taken up to three kids.) The grounds are pristine, facilities the same, Food in the very clean and airy Brabazon Restaurant was very reasonably priced and of excellent quality. I recommend the fish and chips, beautifully...

It was a sunny Saturday and my partner, his 4 year old son and our dog went to "see the fast cars". There was plenty to do both inside and out and having the dog with us was no problem at all - plenty of outside eating area and green spaces. The dog wasn't allowed inside the museum but there...

I enjoyed my day out at Beaulieu with my wife, daughter and grandchildren nice and easy to book on-line and save a great deal. I did like the top gear exhibition and the gardens looked lovely especially the fruit in the greenhouse. The only criticism I have is with the monorail, there were a lot of steps to get onto...

I visited on Saturday; it was a great day out lots to do. They had a Messerschmitt meet so that was a great added extra. My only issue with the day was the café, it was very expensive and it was rubbish my only advise is don’t forget a picnic.

We went to Beaulieu on a beautiful day with friends. We bought our tickets online in advance which saved us quite a bit. There is so much more to see than just the National Motor Museum (the cars were stunning). The World of Top Gear was great fun with a short film showing lots of laugh out loud Top Gear... More
