Beaulieu National Motor Museum

About

Beaulieu is an award winning day out with one ticket granting access to all these attractions:

With over 250 vehicles the National Motor Museum tells the story of motoring on our roads and racetracks. 

Re-live memorable challenges in World of Top Gear – and see exclusive behind-the scenes footage featuring the stars.

Experience the Victorian splendour of Palace House as costumed guides give you a flavour of life `below stairs`. 

Stroll through the gardens and explore the tranquil ruins of Beaulieu Abbey, which houses an exhibition on the Monks that lived and worked on this once bustling complex. 

Ride the Monorail for sweeping views of the park, and uncover the secret role Beaulieu played during World War Two in the Secret Army Exhibition. 

With much more besides, Beaulieu is open daily from 10am (except Christmas day).  See our website for information about our range of events.

Just over 20 miles east of Poole on the B3056 - follow the Brown Tourist Information signs.

 

Beaulieu launches Chitty Chitty Bang Bang 50 years exhibition

To celebrate the golden half century of one of the world’s favourite films Beaulieu is to launch its Chitty Chitty Bang Bang 50 years exhibition which can be seen in the National Motor Museum from 20th October 2018

The exhibition will tell the story of Chitty as the star of the fantasmagorical family adventure and feature an original screen Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Humber 8hp driven by Truly Scrumptious in the much-loved musical film.

Highlights include Coggins’ Garage which will be recreated in the museum to house the amazingly inventive machines of Rowland Emett seen in the film,

Standing outside will be a full-size replica of Grandpa Potts’ hut, recreated using the original 50-year-old technical drawings from the archive of EON Productions.

Never exhibited before original film concept art by Sir Ken Adam, storyboard watercolour artwork by Robert Laing and technical drawings by Peter Lamont will be on display, along with the solid silver Chitty model bought for producer Cubby Broccoli by his wife Dana.

Outside in the grounds, visitors to Beaulieu can see a stunning Chitty Chitty Bang Bang reconstruction being driven around the attraction – you may even be lucky enough to go for a ride!

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang 50 years can be seen as part of the general admission to Beaulieu. See website for more information.
