At the heart of the New Forest, Beaulieu is a multi-award winning family day out with something for everyone.
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, a rustic 1930’s country garage and Wheels – a sedate pod ride through motoring history.
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.
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.
