Visit the family home of Lord Montagu


There is plenty to see at Beaulieu.
If you are a 'petrol-head', then there are over 250 vehicles including cars, racing cars and motorbikes.
You will get to see very famous cars like 'Bluebird', which Donald Campbell used to break the land speed record in 1964.
Palace House is the ancestral home of the Montagu family. It was originally built as the Great Gatehouse to the Abbey.
The Abbey ruins date from c. 13 and was home to the Cistercian Monks. The Abbey was destroyed with the dissolution of the monasteries during the reign of Henry VIII.

For the fans of the original 'Top Gear' TV show series, there is a display of all the cars that Jezza, Captain Slow and the Hamster built in their challenges. . .
