In the heart of the glorious New Forest, Beaulieu is one of the South's top visitor attractions. Here you will find the National Motor Museum, home to over 250 vehicles telling the history of motoring. You can also visit Palace House and Gardens, home of the Montagu family since 1538, the remains of Beaulieu Abbey and World of Top Gear where you can see some of the vehicles from Jeremey, James and Richard's most ambitious challenges. Ride on the high level Monorail or climb aboard the replica 1912 open top London bus for a fun way to see Beaulieu's sights.

We really enjoyed our few hours here. The car exhibition is well laid out and well organised. Could do with a few more adrenaline-type cars but that's just my opinion. Lighting is generally pretty good, which allowed me take photos without flash. Shame the top...More

Marvellous collection of vintage and modern day cars, bikes, scooters, caravans - it had the lot. Tickets reasonably priced (£19.50 per adult if you book online). You can return next day for free and come back to the museum only within one year. Top Gear...More

Had a great chilled day here. Great cars to see and good cafe and really friendly staff on hand. We loved the main house and the paintings were fantastic.

Wonderful place to visit. Only complaint is that the cost of food. £4 for two slices of bread and one of ham and cheese is NOT good value.
