BEAULIEU in the New Forest will be reopening this Saturday, with visitors able to explore the ground and gardens of the house including, for a limited time only, areas of Lord Montagu’s private gardens surrounding Palace House.

Whilst indoor spaces including the National Motor Museum, Palace House, World of Top Gear and the Abbey exhibition remain closed, in line with government guidance, visitors will be able to explore the surrounding lands including the Mill Pond walk and the Beaulieu Abbey.

Visitors will be limited to 500 each day, assisted with the introduction of a new booking system to allow visitors to book their preferred date and arrival time.

Guests will be also able to download a map that guides them on their visit with key points of interested highlighted with commentary written by Lord Montagu.

Lord Montagu said: “I expect that many of our visitors will have been to Beaulieu before but probably not just to enjoy the ground and gardens.

“Whilst our collections and buildings tell fascinating stories, the ground and garden have tales to tell too.

“In writing the guide to ‘Outdoors Beaulieu’, I have taken the opportunity to share some personal perspectives and memories of the place in which I grew up and is still very much my home.”

Beaulieu has also developed a Visitor Safety Promise to reassure visitors of the steps they are taking to help them feel safe during their day out.
