Get ready for the most wonderful time of the year at Beaulieu, as the attraction comes to life for Christmas.
Victorian Christmas at Beaulieu
Saturday, December 18, 2021 to Sunday, January 2, 2022
Take a trip back to 1889 as you step inside the Montagu family home of Palace House to experience a traditional Victorian Christmas. As the costumed servants busily prepare for the family’s Christmas meal, talk to these characters about life in a 19th century country house and find out how this grand occasion was celebrated over a century ago.
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a Yuletide trail, so pick up an activity sheet and be guided on a festive adventure. Make sure to stop at the National Motor Museum and see its Christmas tree decorated with toy cars. The trail will take you past brand new exhibition Bond in Motion – No Time To Die, featuring the iconic cars, gadgets and costumes from the latest 007 film. Then hitch a ride on the Veteran Bus, complete with Christmas decorations.
In every room, admire glittering Christmas trees festooned with eye-catching traditional decorations, with a towering 20ft-tall tree as the impressive centrepiece in the main hall. Look out for the tree decorated in a luxury chocolate theme by chocolatiers Charbonnel et Walker.
For those that truly believe, you may even catch a glimpse of Father Christmas before the big day. Rumour has it that he is out and about in the Beaulieu grounds, driving a vehicle from the National Motor Museum’s collection – make sure to wave to him as he drives past!
