This was a really great day out. Entry is £24 but you get access to all the activities (and the motor museum for the year). I enjoyed the world of top gear and seeing the house and gardens. There really is something for everyone. With a quick trip on the monorail or a tour on an open top bus it... More

There is nowhere else quite like Beaulieui! I cannot think of anywhere that has such a variety of attractions particularly with their special attraction weekends for cars, stationary engines, motorcycles, etc. the grounds and the Abbey are spectacular and the staff are informative and really friendly.

We stopped here on the way back from Bournemouth and it was fabulous. They have gardens, an extensive motor musuem, an abbey, and a house. They had 3 different scavenger hunt trails for the kids and I was impressed by it all. Note: although the entrance opens at 10am and museum is open at 10, the house is not open... More

It was not a bad couple of hours, it seemed quiet expensive for what is there. £24 for entry seems slightly excessive for the amount of time we spent there. The cars in the museum are great and true petrol heads could spend hours in there for sure! Nice day out for every once in a while. It is worth... More

We love cars especially vintage and this museum did not disappoint. We spent half a day drooling over the vehicles even sitting in one for photo's. This is an excellent place to go for a day out even without children. We went on the monorail, visited the Palace and rode on an old vintage bus.

Visited the Gardens, the Abbey, the House and the National Motor Museum as well as travelled on the Monorail. I took 260 digital photographs because there is so much to see, especially within the Motor Museum. Staff in the House were very helpful and explained things well. Had intended to combine a visit to Buckler's Hard but ran out of... More

The motor museum is has everything any petrol head would love. Further the top gear section is great! I am happy to pay the 24 quid as my contribution to motoring history but i think some of the interactive parts could do with modernising a little. Still it is worth the trip.

Thank Richard R
