The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu houses a collection of more than 250 vehicles, from the earliest examples of motoring and family cars of the 1930s and ‘40s through to classic cars of the ‘70s and ‘80s as well as rare motoring oddities such as a giant orange on wheels. The collection houses historic racing cars, F1 and rally cars from the earliest examples of road racers to the latest F1 machines and World Land Speed Record Breakers including Donald Campbell’s ‘Bluebird’.

The museum’s Bond in Motion exhibition, the world’s largest official collection of original James Bond vehicles, has been extended for a further year and to compliment the exhibition, four Bond tours have been added to Beaulieu’s popular programme of themed tours for groups. Each Bond tour will look at the vehicles and films from a specific period of this enduring film franchise.

Other exhibitions for groups to enjoy include On Screen Cars, showcasing a number of TV and film favourites, including Del Boy’s Reliant Regal, as featured in the BBC sitcom Only Fools and Horses, and World of Top Gear, featuring actual vehicles created by presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May for some of their most ambitious challenges on the TV show over the years, including some from the current season.

Also available to group visitors are tours of the 13th century Beaulieu Abbey, Palace House, home of the Montagu family since 1538, and the beautiful grounds and gardens. Groups of 15 persons or more qualify for group booking rates.
