Great day out - really appreciated the fact that we could visit again without charge as the day we came it rained all day so we returned the following day for an hour to walk around the gardens.

Bit expensive as a day out, expected the motor museum to be bigger, didn't take long to see everything. Wouldn't go again

Lovely gardens in the monastery, lots of vehicles to see, however for what you get we felt the entry cost was very expensive.

A great family day out, don't worry if you don't like cars too much, the grounds are excellent, there is a monorail to see around, staff are all friendly food is not too expensive, some of the other attractions cost a little but my 8 year old loved Top Gear World, I would recommend this

We spent almost a full day at Beaulieu and would defiantly say that it was good value for money. We loved 'Top Gear' and managed to spend time doing pretty much everything. Very family oriented and lots for kids to do and enjoy. I would say that the cafe was a bit on the pricy side and there only being... More

Beau lieu is a great day out. There is a motor museum, manor, and gardens. We went on the monorail to get a look from above first then did the 'top gear' tour. The car museum also has a 'pod tour' which was different. the cafe was clean and the food fresh

Going in, we were expecting car stuff, unsurprisingly, but we were impressed with the interactive, varied and really enjoyable way in which the cars and many other attractions were set out. Would certainly recommend this as a good day out. It's not cheap, but once inside there is a lot to do and see so it felt like good value... More

A really enjoyable day. Visited with my husband, 4 year old daughter and inlaws. I am not interested in cars at all but found the motor museum really interesting. The staff were very helpful and our 4 year old loved it. The weather was horrendous in the morning and even the toilets got flooded. We felt the staff handled this... More
