Aiming for a cruise ship from Southampton, we had arrived several days early in the UK to avoid being delayed by a Hong Kong typhoon and decided to spend these in the New Forest. When my wife realised that we were staying close to the Motor Museum she reluctantly accepted the inevitable and accompanied me to view one of my... More

We enjoyed everything on our first visit to Beaulieu. The motor museum was highly enjoyable and we had fun posing in front of the same model of car as our first cars. The garage was fun and we loved the ride. The monorail is a fun way to travel around. We thought that the manor house was really well done... More

Our family of four adults, two OAPs and five children thoroughly enjoyed our day out at Beaulieu. The wheels journey was my highlight, the mono rail and bus were the children's highlight. The restaurant is excellent, providing a great choice of food with very friendly staff. Our tickets are valid for a year so if members of the family are... More

We had visitors for the weekend so looking for things to do we chose to visit Beaulieu. Everyone was in agreement that there were lots of attractions and not just cars but the family home abbey and gardens and Top Gear exhibition for the men! We shall return very soon. Excellent full day out.

A great stop off point on our way to Cornwall. More than enough to satisfy any die hard motor enthusiast. Surprised to see a small section dedicated to the BTCC, a motorsport that I follow. I'm not really into motorbikes, but just had to walk through and see the selection of the really old models. The 'Old Top Gear' exhibit... More

Neither of us had been since we were children and as we both love cars we thought it would be a great day out. Slightly taken back by the cost at first but seeing the amount of vehicles they have and the palace and abbey etc we can see why. We hadn't left enough time to see it all but... More
