Important Notice: From Saturday 6th June, the doors to the Beaulieu visitor attraction will be reopened and visitors will be invited to explore the grounds and gardens including, for a limited time only, areas of Lord Montagu’s private gardens surrounding Palace House.
Beaulieu's new Grounds & Gardens ticket will allow visitors to fully explore the outdoor spaces at Beaulieu. Full information and ticket prices can be found on Beaulieu's website.
Stroll through the Victorian Garden with sweet-smelling roses, Alice in Wonderland topiary and the Love Lock Tree sculpture. Follow the Mill Pond Walk featuring two new tree carvings, hidden fairy doors and views across the Beaulieu River. Experience a moment of serenity in the Beaulieu Abbey Cloister or take a wander through the parkland, normally only open on event days, and find a quiet spot to enjoy a picnic. For this period only, visitors will also be able to walk through Lord Montagu's private gardens surrounding Palace House, allowing them to view aspects of the house not normally seen by visitors.
The National Motor Museum, Palace House, World of Top Gear, Abbey and Secret Army exhibitions remain closed for the time being, as does Beaulieu's adventure play area, Little Beaulieu.
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.
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.
From Spring 2020, let your imagination run wild in Little Beaulieu, the enchanting new play area at Beaulieu for all ages.
Ride the Monorail for informative commentary and sweeping views of the park. In the Secret Army Exhibition, the truth behind Beaulieu’s covert wartime role is revealed…
