My partner and I enjoyed a fantastic day at the Beaulieu Motor Museum. It was a birthday treat and whilst we were there one of the members of staff (Bill) allowed my partner to sit in a few of the cars which really did make his day very special. I cannot thank Bill enough for his knowledge and making our... More

We always enjoy visiting Beaulieu. This time cars, Top Gear, the simulator, the monorail, and the SOE Museum which is unmissable and moving. The facilities are great. The food options are really good. We didn't manage to see the House or Abbey this time.

Great day out, loads to see and do, something for all ages, would definitely recommend this ! We booked online as it was cheaper than on the day, but it covered almost everything including the monorail and a trip on the old vintage bus!

Visited on a Saturday and pleased to find that it was not too busy to affect our leisurely look round cars and other vehicles dating back to the very beginning of transport. We thought a tad expensive at £49.50 for 2 adults although we appreciate that investment is needed to continue to add to what is a fantastic collection. Without... More

We came with some friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The Motor Museum was brilliant and well worth seeing. We were lucky enough to have a guided tour of the house. The guide was very knowledgeable, humorous and he made the tour very interesting. We also enjoyed our lunch in the restaurant and felt we got good value... More

This is a well cared for site, we especially enjoyed the house, the room guides were all friendly and the labels telling stories about the objects were a nice personal touch. The motor museum seemed very popular with vehicle enthusiasts. The downside as the cafe which was featureless and £2.50 for a cup of tea is a it much after... More

This place may sound a bit pricey, but for that price you get access to the grounds and motor museum for a year, along with access to the abbey and Palace House for a week. Everywhere is clean, the gardens and lawns are manicured and well kept and of course, there is a museum full of priceless autos. There is... More

Well thought out museum with an extensive collection of cars, bikes and memorabilia. Top Gear attraction is good and if you're a fan of the challenges then you shouldn't miss the indestructible Toyota Hilux! Gardens and Abbey are interesting and attractive. Cafe is reasonable and has good homemade cake!

Average price - reduction if you are not keen on cars. Lovely abbey and house to view. Lovely grounds. I expect it will get busy in summer. Cafe food good and reasonably priced. Well worth a visit
