Cars On Screen
Between 14th July and 2nd September, Beaulieu will be making every effort to ensure that you'll always have an option for good, clean amusement for the whole family.
A Victorian house party in the Palace House with music in the Lower Drawing Room, family games outside on the lawn and daily playlets are just the tip of the iceberg of interest.
Veteran and Vintage cars will motor around the grounds whilst a Victorian cyclist will take a turn on his Penny Farthing. Ornithologists meanwhile can enjoy daily falconry demonstrations in the picturesque Beaulieu Abbey Cloisters.
And, of course, the National Motor Museum's BOND IN MOTION exhibition (pictured) is an ongoing concern. There you can see 50 original vehicles from the James Bond films, such as the amphibious Lotus Esprit S from The Spy Who Loved Me and Little Nellie – the autogyro from You Only Live Twice.
Beyond Bond, there's also a collection of over 250 vehicles. Amongst their ranks you'll find Land Speed Record breakers, F1 racers a collection new to 2012 of On Screen Cars. These include Mr Bean’s lime green Mini, Harry Potter’s ‘flying’ Ford Anglia and the DeLorean from Back To The Future.
Finally, the ‘World of Top Gear’ features genuine cars from the presenters’ most ambitious challenges on the popular BBC motoring show. It's as close to Clarkson as you'll ever want to get.
Beaulieu is open daily from 10am to 6pm.
That's your summer sorted then, hey?
