Owner description: 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.

“Overpriced Nonsense”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Im a fan of Top Gear and I dont mind the odd Bond Movie now and again (Roger Moore has to be the best no?) but to say I was disappointed at the Motor Museum was an understatement.

£40 for two people was the first shock. £40! I couldn't believe it and still cant. This entry price made me avoid the Cafe on site and instead walk into Beaulieu to have lunch.

The museum was dated and the vehicles on offer was very limited, even with the Bond exhibition. The Top Gear vehicles were in what can only be described as a shed and were in very poor condition.

Essentially the whole visit was a complete waste of time and money and I would suggest you avoid and look around for something else.

“Bond Exhibition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

An excellent addition to the motor car museum. I've visited the motor museum several times previously and still finds things of interest. Well worth the visit.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Had booked online to get 10% off tickets. Appreciate the maintenance upkeep etc. but expensive day out for a family. Thoroughly enjoyed the Bond in Motion and The Top Gear tent brought back some magic moments. The cafe is very limited in food choices and well over priced (take your own)
