Had a brilliant day out here during half term. Lots to see and do. The museum was really good, but also there is so much to do outside when you've had enough. We went on the monorail many times. The children's play area was really good, and plenty of places to wonder around. My only gripe was the extortionate prices... More

We brought my four year grandson for a visit to Beaulieu. He loved seeing Mr Bean\'s real car and hearing the relevant music associated with the car which he recognised. As he is only four it was a whistle stop tour round this time!! We have been several times before. I absoloutely love coming here. It is such a fantastic... More

We really enjoyed our day at Beaulieu. My wife, who wasn\'t really interested in the cars found it interesting and with just enough information so as to be informative but not boring. I found the displays quite amazing with some real hidden gems and some facts I did not previously know so I was happy. The restaraunt was also a... More

Great value on this family day out! The museum was extremely well done with lots of interactive displays. My 14 year old son and husband were enamored with the assortment of vehicles. The Top Gear museum was a big hit as well. Staff were all very friendly and helpful from the front gate and throughout the day. Lots of space... More

The motor Museum is exactly what you expect, a collection of old vehicles, some familiar, many less so. Overall it makes a day trip, once you include the House, gardens, monorail SOE museum and the Monastery. Have visited this place several times over 40 odd years, little seems to change which is a pity, a truly National Museum should be... More

arrived at 10am and left at 5pm closing time and still didn't see everything! The admission gives free access to all areas within 6 days and to the Motor Exhibition only within the year. Also you can buy your tickets in advance online and save £5 on the on the door price, and so to our experience..... We hadn't booked... More

Far better than I expected, spent 5 hours at a leisurely pace going around the the exhibits and buildings. Motor museum very good but so much more to visit with the Abbey and Beaulieu house Highly recommend

With a great range of historic and modern vehicles, an abbey and a stately home, as well as a monorail and extensive gardens,you should plan to take more than a day here. Even in half-term there were no major queues and the team were exceptionally helpful. Unlike so many family-locations, Beaulieu wasn't overly commercial. Note that some tickets allow a... More

Visited today with my husband. I had not been here since I was a kid. We had a lovely day. We arrived at 11 and left about 3. We saw everything and had a stop for lunch. The staff in the palace and abbey were very nice. I think the admission price is tad to high thou. All in all... More
