If you like cars you'll love this museum. The Bond in Motion exhibition is well worth a visit. Set in the beautiful Beaulieu Palace Estate there is also the Palace and Abbey ruins to see.

We hadn't been to the Motor Museum for many years because of the cost, but decided to take our car mad 4 year old grandson. I booked the tickets on line, and as we are oldies the cost was £16.50 each which i giftaided to the museum trust this means we may go as often as we like for the next year as can Ethan as he wil not be 5 until january 2014.I realise this is not such a bargain if you local as we are.

We all enjoyed this day out - was a bit nostalgic too - looking at the old cars. We enjoyed the little bus ride round the grounds, there was an American Car Rally too which was good. My boys liked the top gear exhibition. And the monorail. we were lucky as it was a lovely day and the grounds were well kept. I would recommend if in the area and we were there much longer than anitcipated!

Booked tickets online specifically to visit the Bond in Motion exhibition.

We visited on what was probably the wettest weekend of 2012. Despite the weather we had a great time! Staff were friendly and helpful. Bond exhibition was amazing, along with the national motor museum exhibition. We had the added bonus of a top gear exhibit too which is well worth a peak at.

We didn't get to enjoy all that beaulieu had to offer due to the appalling weather but we will certainly return.

Highly recommend booking tickets online in advance so that you can return within a year!

Worth a visit - it was very festive at Christmas. Warm punch and Christmas carols - superb. The grounds are beautiful and the staff were all very friendly and welcoming.
