Lovely visit and the grounds were gorgeous. There was live opera music performed in the house when we were there which was lovely.

We attended an amazing wedding in the Tree House at Beaulieu, certainly a location to look at for a different venue

Was very happily surprised by the house, there's lots to see and so much of the house is open to explore! Very useful and informative staff and lots of old fashioned activities were going on for the children to enjoy! Definitely worth a visit!

What a fantastic day. I had not been here since visiting Beaulieu Motor Museum as a child and I was utterly amazed at all that was on offer.

We visited Beaulieu last weekend. It is a truly lovely place to visit. We have visited on many occasions but always find something new to see. A definite must for any time of the year. We found a lovely tree to have our picnic under.
