A visit to Beaulieu is a great day out for the whole family. Not only is the House and Abbey ranked with Chatsworth, Blenheim, Woburn and the others as one of Engalnd's top ten Treasure Houses, it is also home to the National Motor Museum with more than 250 vehicles dating from the late 19th century to the present day....

This is a huge part of the Motor museum. Big park and kitchen gardens to take in all the various smells. The house is OK, but being disabled I did not get the full view here. And I do appreciate they cannot fit a lift in this old building. The abbey was the best part with a film to view... More

..not that I am encouraging them to up the price. But you'll need to put a good four hours in to really appreciate. Loved the tour of the house, despite being a National Trust member and having been to umpteen historic houses - the animated female tour guide in her maid's outfit was excellent and really made the house visit....

We stayed in the area and although my other half does not like the sound of a Motor Museum we paid our Senior Citizen rate and went in. We rode the Monorail which gave us a good view of the gardens, and where to find the Abbey and Palace, it even went through the Motor Museum so we had a... More
