About Beaulieu

The picturesque 7000-acre estate and village of Beaulieu is home to the National Motor Museum (20% off) with one of the world’s greatest car collections, including the legendary Bluebird.

You can also wander through the peaceful ruins of Beaulieu Abbey and the splendour of Palace House, seat of the Montagu family.

An easy walk or cycle away along the Beaulieu River is the historic hamlet of Buckler’s Hard, where they built the ships for Nelson’s navy.
