About

Come to Beaulieu in the heart of the New Forest and discover the many delights that one of the UK's leading Tourist Attractions has to offer. It's a guaranteed great family day out with many attractions to discover in acres of beautiful grounds.

The National Motor Museum has over 250 vehicles telling the story of motoring from World Land Speed Record Breakers to Formula 1 racers. Take a ride on 'Wheels'; a pod ride journey taking you through 100 years of motoring, and visit Jack Tucker's Garage, which recreates the sights, sounds and smells of a typical country garage from the 1930s. As well as this, take a ride around the attraction on the high-level Monorail or see the sights from the replica 1912 open-topped London Bus.

World of Top Gear; see the actual cars from Jeremy, Richard and James' most ambitious challenges over the years. Plus enter the Top Gear 'Enormodrome' which recreates the feel of the Top Gear studio.

Included in your visit to Beaulieu is entry into Palace House, home of the Montagu family since 1538, and Beaulieu Abbey with its exhibition and film of monastic life. Visit the Secret Army Exhibition, telling the story of wartime Beaulieu and the training of secret agents.
