60 Years

For over 60 years, Beaulieu has been a motoring nirvana in the heart of the New Forest National Park, set in idyllic countryside surroundings and just a stone’s throw away from the south coast. A favourite with enthusiasts is the National Motor Museum which tells the story of British motoring with its collection of more than 250 vehicles. From British Land Speed Record breakers to oddities including a giant motorised orange, the museum is packed with motoring treasures.

But Beaulieu is more than just a museum. Throughout the year, the picturesque parkland comes alive with unmissable motoring events for national and international enthusiasts. The event fields are home to the award-winning International Autojumble, which recently won Tourism South East’s Beautiful South Award for excellence as the gold-winning tourism event in its 50th year. The Practical Classics team has long made Beaulieu’s International and Spring autojumbles landmark events on its annual itinerary.
