An extremely popular part of Beaulieu, the National Motor Museum is a must visit area for all petrol heads.

Not only are there family cars and racing cars, but currently on display are a selection of World Land Speed Record motor vehicles and the most popular display, the James Bond Experience. Feature a variety of different cars, boats and other motor fuelled vehicles from the world famous James Bond films, it is a must see exhibit for any car, gadget or James Bond enthusiast.
For those visitors wishing to take a break, think about taking a seat on an exact replica of a 1912 London Bus that drives around the estate, the monorail that circles the entire site or for the younger visitors to Beaulieu, they can try out the fun and exciting Mini Motor Play Trail.
