Details on what activities are available at Beaulieu?

Beaulieu is a multi-award winning family day out, where memories can be made all together.

The National Motor Museum

With over 250 vehicles in its world famous collection, the Museum tells the story of motoring in Britain from humble beginnings to the present day. Displays include classic cars, historic sporting motors, modern rally cars, F1 racers and a rustic 1930’s country garage.

World of Top Gear

World of Top Gear recreates the feel of the Top Gear Studio. See unique behind the scenes footage from Top Gear HQ and cars from the show’s most ambitious challenges.

Palace House

Explore the magnificent Palace House – Lord Montagu’s family home since 1538 – and discover the history of the house and its former residents. Meet the Butler, Cook and Housemaids and gain an insight into the workings of a Victorian country house.

Beaulieu Abbey

Beaulieu Abbey was largely destroyed by Henry VIII – but the conserved ruins show the scale of this formerly vast complex. An ancient Abbey building houses a fascinating exhibition on Monastic Life.


Uncover the truth behind Beaulieu’s covert wartime role in the Secret Army Exhibition, see your TV and film favourites in On Screen Cars, and enjoy unlimited rides on the mile-long Monorail and replica Veteran Bus.

Things to do in the local area?

The New Forest is a paradise for nature lovers, with ponies, cows and donkeys all free to roam the landscape. Explore via the range of walking and cycling routes, or settle down in one of the charming villages. As well as Beaulieu, there are many other attractions and events to enjoy locally.
