We were staying in Southampton so decided to visit. Follow the signs to new forest and you will find Beaulieu motor museum. Home of the Montegue dynasty. We arrived and found it easy to park and not too busy. We visited the museum first with a larger selection of cars, bikes and motoring equipment. Worth the visit on its own.... More

What a fabulous collection of motoring in Britain and a fitting tribute to the Duke of Montequ by his family. We spent quite a bit longer in the motor museum than we had anticipated but my husband is an enthusiast and we both enjoyed the exhibits very much. We also visited the Palace house and grounds and were very interested... More

You really do get a bit of everything! The Manor House, the Gardens, the Abbey and of course the motor museum. Everything is kept in tip top condition, the staff are knoweledgable and helpful. Do allow yourself half a day to take it all in. And of course take your time driving there through the gorgeous New Forest. Loved it!

Visited for my husbands 41st birthday. He last came here when he was 3 years old. Had a wonderful day seeing some brilliant cars. Kids really enjoyed the top gear experience. Definitely worth the money.

This motor museum is fantastic. We have never seen so many vintage cars all in one place before! Wonderful place for families to visit especially young children. My husband and I took a ride on the lovely old bus and the monorail and we loved every minute of it. We have been before some years ago but certainly intend to... More

Myself and my partner visited Beaulieu on a sunny May day after having previously visited some 20 years ago when we were both small. We thoroughly enjoyed the 4/5 hours that we spent here and were pleasantly surprise by just how much there really is to see. There is something for everyone, not just motor enthusiasts. In particular we found... More

Beaulieu is an amazing place. We booked our ticket online and the price gets you into all the attractions. Cars, Palace House,Abbey, Grounds and gardens, World of Top Gear the list goes on. Well worth it. The Cream Tea in the Brabazon Restaurant was scrumcious. Super day out.

An enjoyable and varied day out with a vast array of vehicles on display in the museum alongside the historical impact of the house palace and abbey. I'm not really a motor fan but I found touring the motor museum really interesting and we easily spent over an hour just admiring the condition of the cars (and bikes) and development... More

If you love cars even a little bit this is a must see. Buy your tickets online at least two days in advance and you get a good discount. There so many cars and great displays. Both my kids loved it (9/11) The house and Abby are really good as well. It's a great place to have a little picnic.... More
