The gates of Little Beaulieu are open and ready to welcome little ones this summer, with tree-top walkways, a secret staircase, epic climbing walls, a zip wire and even more exciting features in the enchanting play area modelled on Lord Montagu’s ancestral home of Palace House. Built for playtime, the design of this wooden wonder pays homage to Beaulieu’s remarkable heritage and ancient buildings.
Hop aboard Beaulieu’s much-loved Veteran Bus, back in service after an 18-month rest, and experience the relaxed pace of public transport as it was over a century ago.
If the high octane excitement of glamorous supercars is your thing, then make sure you don’t miss the Beaulieu Supercar Weekend on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th August.
