New Forest, SO42 7ZN

Visit Beaulieu in the heart of the New Forest and discover the many delights that one of the UK’s leading tourist attractions has to offer.

In the National Motor Museum, see over 285 stunning vehicles on display from every motoring era, including children’s favourite Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and motoring oddities such as a giant orange on wheels!

Visit the historic Montagu family home, Palace House, and talk to costumed guides about life in a Victorian country house. In 13th century Beaulieu Abbey enjoy an exhibition about the lives of its Cistercian monk founders.

Let your imagination run wild in Little Beaulieu, an adventure play area featuring a zipwire, treetop boardwalks and secret passageways. Ride the high-level Monorail for sweeping views of the park and take a ride on the Veteran London Bus.

Spot new displays and motors in the ‘World of Top Gear’, featuring vehicles from some of the show’s most ambitious challenges and experience the Top Gear ‘Enormodrome’ which recreates the feel of the Top Gear studio.
