BEAULIEU was awarded gold by VisitEngland in the 2013 Awards for Excellence.

Between July 20 and September 1, visitors can join the Victorian house party in Palace House with music in the Lower Drawing Room, family games outside on the lawns and daily playlets to enjoy. There are veteran and vintage cars motoring around the grounds, and a Victorian cyclist on his penny farthing. In the Beaulieu Abbey Cloisters, there is a history of falconry and special daily flying demonstrations.

Also on view is the National Motor Museum’s exhibition, Bond In Motion, with 50 original vehicles from the James Bond films. Some of Bond’s most iconic vehicles are on display, including the aquatic Lotus Esprit S1 from The Spy Who Loved Me, the quirky Little Nellie autogyro from You Only Live Twice and the vanishing Aston Martin Vanquish from Die Another Day plus vehicles from the latest film Skyfall.

Beaulieu is open 10am to 6pm daily. For more details visit www.beaulieu.co.uk
