Overview

Type: Museum

There’s nothing like Beaulieu.

At the heart of the New Forest, Beaulieu is a multi-award winning family day out with something for everyone:

The National Motor Museum

You can see these and over 250 more vehicles at the world-famous National Motor Museum. From legendary F1 cars and land-speed-record breaker for the speed-freaks to incredible examples of pioneering motoring for the history-buffs. For those who like to get a bit more hands on, there are interactive displays, as well as ‘Wheels’, a retro pod-ride through motoring history.

World of Top Gear

You can see 20 of the iconic challenge cars here at the World of Top Gear in the condition they were left in after filming! Plus step into the Enormodrome and get a feel of the famous Top Gear studio.Palace House

Palace House

Get a fascinating look into Palace House, the Montagu family home since 1538 and their collection of family treasures. Costumed guides help you get a feel for what it would’ve been like in Victorian times. Explore never-before-seen rooms and view a newly installed collection of unique Russian art. How did the Victorians cook and what did they like to eat? From Easter 2017 visit the newly restored Victorian Kitchen which has been put back to its original layout.

Beaulieu Abbey

Walk in the footsteps of medieval monks who lived here over 800 years ago. This is where it all started, and you can walk amongst the stunning ruins of the Beaulieu Abbey and learn about its origins with a special exhibition bringing the past to life.

Plus

Ride the Monorail for informative commentary and sweeping views of the park, or something a little more down-to-earth, there’s our open top veteran bus.  In the Secret Army Exhibition, the truth behind Beaulieu’s covert wartime role is revealed…
