Beaulieu and the National Motor Museum

Few car museums in the world can match the unique collection of the world renowned National Motor Museum at Beaulieu. When it comes to cars, motorbikes, commercial vehicles, motoring eccentricities and memorabilia, the National Motor Museum is firmly in the driving seat.

With the Collection now comprising some 250 vehicles - from some of the earliest examples of motoring to legendary World Record Breakers like Bluebird and Golden Arrow - you are sure to find something to interest you.

Take a ride on the monorail, try go-karting or 'Wheels,' a space age pod taking you through the history of motoring. You can also explore the Palace House, Abbey and gardens at your leisure.  Visit the James Bond Experience, and the Secret Army Exhibition.

The Brabazon Restaurant serves main meals and snacks throughout the day, and the shop sells motoring related gifts and clothing.
