We participated as a trunk trader. There were so few visitors that we had decided by 1.00pm that we were not going to sell any more items. We went to leave but it turned out the exit gate to the site was locked. The staff at the gate were not letting us out. We went to the site office and... More

We were sorry to read your comments after such a good reaction from visitors and exhibitors at this year’s event. We were pleased with the turn-out of nearly 6,600 visitors and many said how much they enjoyed themselves. We do ask traders to stay until the end of the event, as an act of goodwill to visitors who have paid... More

Visited the National car museum as we heard about it somehow and we were not far away, thought the admission price was a bit dear but proceeded anyway, what a good decision that was. The grounds were very well presented and maintained and the souvenir shop and restaurant was modern and clean well staffed with friendly people. The museum was... More

We went for the afternoon - unplanned - we had our dog with us who was welcome in the grounds but not in buildings which was fair. My husband & I took it in turns to visit the palace and the motor museum, although there is an area you can leave dogs in the shade, with water, secure on a... More

Very impressed with our trip to Beaulieu and the variety of attractions on offer. Lovely to see the House, the Secret War exhibition and the Motor Museum which was very good. Almost feel like you need a second day as we were there 5 hours and still could have been there longer. The motor museum is so full of cars... More

As a repeat visitor from about 8 years ago I was disappointed with my visit yesterday. It felt as though even after 8 years there were few if any new things to see. Also the whole museum including main building, restaurant and shop felt dated to me. I don't underestimate the enormous cost of keeping facilities up to date so... More

Value for money, we stayed for 6 hours. Something for all, not just cars. Worth pre booking to avoid queues.

A birthday treat for my husband, and one that I thoroughly enjoyed too. A good diversity of things to do - the motor museum and the abbey and house. The gardens were beautiful too. A very enjoyable day out.

Great fun, full day out for everyone, so much to do and see for all age groups. Great family day out, made my husband's birthday an extra special day! We weren't aware of the variety of activities at Beaulieu Motor Museum, the children go-karted, went on a vintage bus and the monorail, we had a picnic in the gorgeous surroundings,... More

This is a little old school plus some modern features with decent videos / interactive / dark rides however put simply the modern devices can't hide the majesty of the cars exhibited - they are just stunning. Adding the Abbey and Palace, walks, monorail etc - there is probably 2 days here and if you're a museum type you'll be... More
