Beaulieu is the UK’s iconic motor museum. It was celebrated as the best large visitor attraction of 2013 by VisitEngland. What does it have in store?

For the motoring enthusiast, Beaulieu is a treasure trove of delights. The collection contains some 250 immaculately kept and restored cars and motorcycles, which trace the history of UK motoring.

Truly remarkable vehicles are kept there. In addition, superbikes and the latest F1 vehicles or classics like the Bugatti 15 from 1910, the second oldest surviving Bugatti in the world are on show.

You could also check out the cars used in Top Gear challenges at The World of Top Gear, where all the vehicles smashed, dropped, modified or ruined are kept. In the Enormodrome, yet more unique scenery and footage from behind the scenes at the show is on display.

Themed tours of Beaulieu museum take place daily at 2:30pm, and elsewhere an original 1930’s garage has been painstakingly restored within the museum. Everything in it is a genuine artefact collected over the last 25 years, and seeks to lend an insight into the world of yesteryear.

Go karting is also available for children during the school holidays, or alternatively you might catch a glimpse of Christmas past, if you visit in the Xmas season when period costumes and carol singing take place.

Beaulieu is also apparently one of Britain’s most haunted places and there’s every opportunity for kids to hear a spooky story.

The attraction combines all kinds of elements. For petrolheads there is more than enough on site to keep your interest, but cannily the organisers have worked out that often for visiting families, mums and kids may not be as interested in the cars on display.

For that reason, the overall interests available are more diverse, and enable each member of the family to enjoy themselves while visiting as a whole, which is just what family is about.
