In the heart of the glorious New Forest, Beaulieu is one of the South's top visitor attractions. Here you will find the National Motor Museum, home to over 250 vehicles telling the history of motoring. You can also visit Palace House and Gardens, home of the Montagu family since 1538, the remains of Beaulieu Abbey and World of Top Gear where you can see some of the vehicles from Jeremy, James and Richard's most ambitious challenges. Ride on the high level Monorail or climb aboard the replica 1912 open top London bus for a fun way to see Beaulieu's sights.
Really only interested in the house and its history, which was beautifully set out with staff in period costume, only critic was i would have liked to see more of how the house including a bedroom would have looked, although the museum / information set out gives ample insight to the house and family. then you have as part of the ticket was the motor museum, abbey, monorail, Gardens, and vintage bus ride. we went on a quiet day and i would have thought the queues would be quite significant for some attractions. there is also a small museum giving information of the role of the house and the new forest properties during ww2 which was sadly passed by so many people when we were there. people you missed out here...

A really lovely place to take a rest or visiting the new forrest. Whilst we visited there were photographers taking images of the sunset over the pond and many other activities going on around us. A very idealistic place to have a picnic.

Once the refectory of the original abbey, the church has some very interesting features.
The church was granted in 1246 and it has been this ever since. On entering apart from the very red ceiling you would not believe that this building was not a church. The gentleman in the church at the time was very knowledgeable and explained how the church was 'revamped' over the years. If you need quiet time this is the place to be, a good place to see....

This tiny church/chapel can be found in the main street of Bucklers Hard, it is very small but it is still used as a place of worship. It has some interesting history and is very well worth a look if in this beautiful village.

Brockenhurst is a lovely village but really quiet so visiting this church will be part of your walking tour. It is situated about 300 yards from the railway station just outside the village. We were lucky that some of the volunteers were there in the morning and let us in otherwise it is open from 2.30pm. Approach via the cemetery and contemplate the War Graves Commission memorials. Brockenhurst was a massive hospital village, mainly for New Zealanders, during WW1 although the remains of the hospital have disappeared. Within the church is an exhibition which gives more details and photographs of the medical and nursing staff. There are also beautiful stained glass windows and a small collection of memorabilia to buy. However your visit will not take long as the church is small so you should also enjoy the walk back to the village.

We have family living close by so visit this area of the forest regularly throughout the year... It is quite beautiful and a nice walk encompasses the moor, the ponies and the expanse of sky, then the trees and forest that follows the stream, and the stream itself... The setting for many picnics, dog walks, bridge and dam building projects, jumping in and swinging from the rope swing... The children have grown up loving every minute of their time out here... It is simple and free, and you can bring a picnic or a snack and enjoy a short walk, or a day out... It is breathtaking in the morning and the evening, we have been star gazing at night and have had some of our best adventures with the ice during the winter.
