Take a visit to Beaulieu this half-termBack

BeaulieuWe’re well into the school term now and soon it will be time for the kids to have a hard earned break – if you’re struggling to think of things to keep them occupied during the half-term holidays, why not plan a trip to Beaulieu.

Situated in the South of England in Hampshire, Beaulieu Motor Museum promises lots of interactive fun for all the family to take part in this half-term.

Step inside the national museum and you’ll have the rare opportunity to handle and learn about historical motoring objects at special ‘drop in’ sessions which run between 10.30am and 4.30pm daily. The museum offers the chance to take an up-close look at the history of motoring with early motoring clothing, photos and a range of unusual items on display.

There is also a choice of more than 250 vehicles on display, from the earliest examples of motoring and family cars which span right back to the 1930s and 1940s, through to some of the classic cars of the 1970s and 1980s, and even some rare motoring oddities will be on display such as a giant orange on wheels!

A walk inside Jack Tucket’s Garage will take you back to the sights, sounds and smells of a typical country garage from the 1930s, or you can take a ride on ‘Wheels’ a space-age pod ride which takes you on a fascinating voyage through 100 years of motoring.

Also inside the museum is a giant Scalextric track where you can try your hand racing against friends and family – reach the top of the leader board to win a fantastic prize.

Take a visit to Palace House, home of the Montagu family since 1538 to discover our own costumed guide talking to visitors in the Kitchen about what cooking in a Victorian country house was really like. There is also a fascinating exhibition entitled Royal Pageant, exploring the links between Beaulieu, its owners and the royal family from right back to 1204 and the foundation of Beaulieu Abbey.

If all this simply isn’t enough, Beaulieu is also offering a special Half Price Child Offer through February half-term in exchange for your support of their world record-breaking attempt! On the 5th May 2014, they hope to smash the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous line of toy cars. Each child who donates two or more toy cars to the record attempt when purchasing admission tickets, in person, on the day of their visit, will qualify for half price child admission.

Beaulieu is open from 10am – 5pm daily. For more information, please visit www.beaulieu.co.uk
